    I have graduated in B.A but I have more knowledge than you.

    1) I have graduated in B.A but I have more knowledge than you.

    2) I was graduating in B.A at that time. (I know you have told me that we should say "I was trying for a degree in B.A but is it correct to say this?)

    (I fail to see the connection between the two clauses).

    2. No, it is not correct to say that.
    Can we say "I graduated with a B.A degree"?

    Yes, but 'degree' is superfluous.

    I graduated establishes the academic context in which B.A. is a degree. Including the word "degree" adds nothing but dead weight to the sentence.
    I am not a teacher.
