Ace my classes


Senior Member
Hello everyone

In the movie "monsters university" one of the character, mike says "I need to ace my classes".

Can someone please explain to me what did he mean?

Thank you all in advance

    The definition is buried deep in one of the dictionaries under ace, so it would be hard to find - I think it is primarily a US usage. The symbol for an ace in cards is A, same with the best grade one can obtain in a class.

    a. to receive a grade of A, as on a test or in a course (sometimes followed by out ).
    b. to complete easily and successfully: He aced every physical fitness test they gave him.
