    Four years left of schooling.

    Tom is at school. He is in Ninth standard and he can pass out school after clearing the Twelfth standard. What we need to say? "Four years are left of his schooling" or "He will have to stay Four more years in school."

    Please check.

    Re: Four years left of schooling.

    Assuming he is at the beginning of what you call "Ninth standard", then...

    "He has four more years [of school] to go!"

    Post #1 should have said "What do​ we need to say?"
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
