    I'm just fed up it was summer and I thought about getting some revision down i was doing good in English and really good in science with A's an A stars so I thought I'd practice some maths after a week I could do a lot of algebra among other impressive things and for the first time ever I enjoyed maths, I return back to school and couldn't wait to go to my next maths lesson, only to find out I've been moved down a set to the THIRD set I was in shock I finally started to show an interest in maths and now this happens I can only get a C in foundation when I was hoping for atleast a B I could get that easily in my opinion, we begin the first lesson and its about simplifying fractions ! I just thought that this is too easy for me I can achieve more and unlock my full potential in a higher set but no I have to do a whole worksheet on simplifying fractions, I'm just wasting my time I'm fed up this has put me down I just want to move up, depression has got to me too, I hate sets I hate being underestimated and I hate that my school is the worst in my area

    Try to convince a teacher to put you in a higher set then? Offer to do a test even to show your ability.
