    i got a c+ 1 mark away from a b and my teacher wants to put me in foundation core science
    Even though we have still have got 4 more months till the core exam.
    Worst of all i am doing triple science and this was my first mock!
    I feel so dumb
    i feel like complaining!
    She said it is safer to do foundation than higher.But i didnt revise for the test and we still have 4months!!
    Consequently if i do foundation and get b (if you do well in coursework) or under i will probably tell my parent for me to do the higher test privately(i just wonder how much it cost?)
    i am starting to hate science as my teacher is ruining my chances of going into a really good sixth form and choosing the sciences.
    foundation should be a last resort not just chuck it onto someone!
    And i am "suppose" to be one of the cleverest people in the year as i am doing triple science(only 40 are allowed to do it)yet there is a fair chance of doing FOUNDATION.So how am i meant to be clever.i feel like a caged lion.

    Believe in your own instincts. Many times, teachers can get the wrong end of the stick and are often proven wrong on Result's Day: don't let her beliefs prevent you from achieving the grades that you know you are capable of getting! If needs be, ask your parents (who I'm sure will want you to go for the Higher paper) to contact your school regarding this matter - the sooner this is sorted out, the better. All of us make mistakes in exams, but mocks aren't very accurate - you shouldn't feel like a caged lion because of it.

    Good luck with your exams!

    thank you for your inspirational advice i think i will tell my parents but they will probably shout at me for not revising and make me have 4 hours of revision a day from my sister.In the long run it will be worth it. HOPEFULLY!
