Hi, Mom! Why do some people say someone has "passed" when they die? How does anyone know whether another person has passed or failed? A dead person can't show you his report card. Oh, it's pretty obvious in some cases: Mother Theresa passed, Ted Bundy failed. But most cases aren't that clear cut. And anyway, even if they did pass, they didn't merely pass. There's no next grade to go to. They graduated.
