Is it Past or Passed? - Writing Tip

Past is a time thing, something that happened in the past, or it’s a synonym for ‘beyond’. Passed, is used when you mean “exceeded”, or “went by.”

For instance, “It’s past understanding, how Fonzie passed his History test. When I passed him in the hall, he said he didn’t study, because the past was boring.”
