    I was an ordinary student

    If your academic performance was neither too good nor too bad, just around average level, how do you say that?
    For example, your ranking was like 15~25th among all the 40 students in your class.

    I was an ordinary student?
    I studied so so?

    Re: I was an ordinary student

    I am not a teacher.

    'I was an average student' is probably the best fit.

    'Mediocre' and 'so so' work too, but they have a connotation of slightly worse than average.
