CONSIDER AS , CONSIDER TO BE, CONSIDER
Consider the following sentences : He is currently considered as the best British athlete. He is currently considered to be the best British athlete. He is currently considered the best British athlete. The ones without "as" are more idiomatic , but even so, "as constructions" are perfectly idiomatic too. Although they are not as common in recent use as they have been in the past, they are still in use and are standard. However, to be on the safe side, you should avoid using them, since "as constructions" have many critics. One among them is the Cambridge English dictionary, which says the following : We don't use as with consider. We say : We consider this to be a very serious issue. Not : We consider this as a very serious issue.
