    I go to a grammar school and am currently in bottom set

    In set 3 (the one above me they are 7a's -8c's)
    In set 2 they are solid 8c's
    And in set 1 they are 8b-8a's

    I got a 7b in my maths (a flunk for me ) but am finishing all work tasks and homework and the teacher is having to get ore work for me. I feel like I am only going over stuff I allready know!

    Our next exams are in November but I don't know what else I can do ?

    You should ask your teacher for advice and make sure you ace your next test if you really want to move up a set as that's what those regular assessments are for - to see if people are in the correct set. However, be aware that sometimes there may not always be space in the set above.
