Is it worth doing foundation as the highest you can get is a C and you can get a C easily in the higher paper (I think it's 50%ish)?

Well done with your coursework! That can be your lifesaver if listening doesn't go to plan.

All depends on the UMS you get and if it's a high or low A. I'd say that you should try your best to get a B in the exams as you have plenty of time to revise vocab and practice exercises till May. It's all about practice with languages - give it time to see your progress

Foundation is way easier, but harder to get a C I'd say. If you really want a B overall then put the work in and go for higher. My friend got an E in her listening but still ended up with a C overall due to a high A in coursework and a decent reading exam mark (can't remember the grade) - so it's worth the risk.

If you got 100% in your coursework, you would already have a C without taking any exam (as an overall, I know you got an A in your coursework)

therefore, since you did well in your coursework, if you get a C or a B in the real exam you'll probably get a B overall at foundation paper. Just remember that just because you want to do foundation, doesn't mean you'll get a C because you have your coursework there too to bump your grade up!

I was a high B/ low A in course work however my speaking and listening were U's...I know how you feel

I managed to get a tutor 4 weeks before the exam and she picked out my strangths and weakness and advised I should take foundation

I recommend you look on Tutorhunt or something have a good look around and then talk to you parents about it
Choose the type of teacher your comfortable with(for me it was a female teacher)

Hope this helps
