It's as easy in both. The questions are more difficult in Higher but the grade boundaries are lower.

Go for higher, you might just get a B - at least it's possible.

My thought process is that, in theory, a pupil capable of getting a C in Foundation should be capable of getting a C in Higher because they're very carefully weighted. However, in Higher, if you do really well you can get a B whereas in Foundation it's capped. So you can only win if you do Higher, assuming that you're capable of getting a C.

Because a C is highest attainable grade in foundation, the test paper is easier and therefore grade boundaries are higher. However with higher papers a C is usually 50%. Anyhow you could surprise yourself and come out with a B

Writing practice essays? If you're also doing English externally and you don't have a teacher to help, you could maybe find example essays on the internet so you can see how to structure essays/questions and if you look at some mark schemes you'll be able to see things the exam board want you to include

It's far easier to get a C on the Higher paper than the Foundation paper.
