We use this phrase to say that work or studies are too difficult for somebody.
It’s used formally and informally, and can be both spoken or written.
Here’s an example:
Debbie 🗣 “How did Mike do today in his new job?”
Tony 🗣 “Well, he said that he was a bit out of his depth, but I’m sure he’ll adjust to it eventually”
