I got a D in Maths last year. In June, I got 47 marks and I think 65 was for a C.I have always done Higher throughout High School and I did the exam in June. My teacher think it is better that I should do foundation. I did the foundation paper in November and it's easier, but I don't get high marks on foundation. I'm asking about doing Higher in June 2016. What would you do? I have too convince her because she wont let me do higher because I am at college. I'm planning on sitting it in June.

When do you plan on sitting the paper? If in the summer, I would recommend the higher paper because you have around 7 months to prepare which is PLENTY of time,
Seriously, GCSE maths isn't difficult and I reckon the average person could get an A/A* grade with a month of decent revision.
Notice I said average, as in someone who hasn't done maths in forever.

It lies on each person's strengths and weaknesses personally. Higher tiers will contain more technical sums and questions whereas foundation is a lot easier. I do agree that it is easier to get a C in Higher providing you are already working at a C/B grade level. Work on what you lack in and work your way up.
