Why is "the pupil" rejected? Does "elevul" refer to a particular level of student, say, university vs. elementary school?

Yes, ”elev” refers to secondary- and post-secondary (high) school and ”student” to university.

So "pupil" sounds more correct than "student" ... especially since "student" is also a word.

That is correct, "pupil" is the best translation for "elev", and should be accepted. Please make sure you report this if you encounter it in the future.

It's fine, and should be accepted.
