    is it possible for me to move up to set 1 halfway through year 9 or is it not possible due to changing exam boards and stuff?

    It is unlikely to be dependent on exam boards but depends entirely on your school's procedures.

    If its in year 9, then I doubt you're doing external exams, therefore the problem won't be exam boards. However from personal experience you have to stand out so much in your set to move up halfway through the year. Its much more likely you'll move up at the end of the year so youll be in a higher set in year 10

    It's not very likely, though if you think the class you have been placed in is below your ability then you should take it up with the teaching staff, or get your parents do to this on your behalf.

    Yeah, I had a friend who was in set 2 in our division but after his end of yet exams, he went into set 1 of the whole year in year 10.

    Although, it's up to your school since they might have a different way to decide who goes to what set

    Not very likely. Not because the school thinks you are not capable, it would be a logistical issue and they would rather want you to wait till year 10.

    School is probably over now for summer, best bet would be to study over the summer (pain I know) to prove how you should move up a set. Then ask to speak to the head of year/science and request it. School is really fair, kid. This is the only time in your life when adults are keen and willing to listen. If you show motivation and maturness then they will consider your case.
