    Re: The class has been over.

    The first two are incorrect.
    The second two are correct.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Okay I used to think that "The "session" or "class" is over" was correct. Is there any way to use "is" or "was" with over?

    If we have to say it in past then we have to say ""The session had been over". Can we say "As soon as the "class" or "session" got over I came out of the room".
