* In ''WesternAnimation/Sealab2021'' Stormy is seen with the rest of the fourth graders....sorry, "fourth and fifth mixed". Apparently he has trouble learning the alphabet.

* Exaggerated in the ''Literature/TheBabySittersClub'' fanfic [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/2177005/1/Caludia-Keeshi-Middel-Skol-Mamma Caludia Keeshi Middel Skol Mamma]], where, after ten years, Claudia is ''still'' in the eighth grade, because she can't be arsed to apply herself and pass the exit exam. Her former charges are now her peers (and some are her fellow BSC members) and her former classmate Cokie is now her ''gym teacher''. [[spoiler: She finally passes the exit exam at the end and declares how much she'll enjoy going to high school with the rest of the club.]]

* ''LarryCrowne'' is a fairly realistic version: Larry went into the Navy right out of college. When he gets fired from his job for not having a college diploma, he goes to community college to have a better chance on the job market.

* Played with Raika Kasumi in ''Anime/M3TheDarkMetal''. She's the oldest of the whole team (but not by much, somewhere between 18 to 20 years old). She was already a [[AMechByAnyOtherName MA-Vess]] test pilot working for [[MegaCorp IX]], but they make her go through her training all over again, joining [[TheHero Akashi]] and friends, who are high school students in their first and second years. Enforced with the fact that the uniform they wear as trainees has all the appearance of an institute uniform, which she has to wear too.
