moving a grade up [school]


Brazilian Portuguese
Good Morning People!

I've got a simple question, I think.

When you pass to another grade in school, what expressions are most used?

(?) Tim is very happy; he has got a new grade.

(?) Tim is very happy; he has moved to a new grade.

(?) Tim is very happy; he has grade up.

I'm a English Teacher in Brazil and I was asked this question, but I couldn't give a proper answer because I didn't study in a regular school in England when I lived there.

    Yes, your first and third sentences don't sound natural.

    The expression also depends on your target audience. For the UK and Australia, for example, you would say that Tim has moved up a (school) year.
