    Slot-in student?

    May I ask what is the proper name for a student who is not promoted to an upper grade but inserted into it after the class has started for a long time. Is it called a slot-in student? Thanks a lot.

    I don't think there's a proper term for it. I could be wrong though. I've never heard the term "slot-in student" before though.

    Not a teacher.

    When I've had classes with such a student s/he has been referred to (at first) as a "late starter/joiner".
