Suppose there is an honorable contest. This contest is organised into different levels. There is a regional level and then is the national level.

Suppose I had contended in the first level and secured success in it. Then I am eligible in the next level.

I have to articulate this in a word both formally or colloquially. I need help to do it.

  1. I have qualified the first round
  2. I have been qualified for the second round

Which one of the above is the right usage? New parallel words are also allowed. If the second sentence is correct, how do I formulate the second one?

    "I have qualified in the first round." (insert in); "I have xbeenx qualified for the second round." (delete been) -- Both are correct. After that, please visit English Language Learners – Kris Dec 13 '13 at 6:36

    You are eligible to compete in a competition, which means you have the necessary requirements to participate in a tournament. – Mari-Lou A Dec 13 '13 at 6:44

    Colloquially, you can say, "I made it past the first round. I get to [move on/advance] to the second round." – Jim Dec 13 '13 at 6:55

the first sentence can be written as "I was qualified in the first round" and the second can be "I am qualified for the second round"...both usage are correct
