    I would take higher because you do not need as many marks to get the C GRADE and I know for a fact that the vast majority of people do not get the C

    IM IN year 12 now and when my school made me do foundation in year 9 and 10 I was doing really badly but they let me do higher probs down to my amazing maths teacher I was one mark off a C IN june I retook in November and now have my C grade so I would say go for the higher paper and also do loads of past papers as it will help

    good luck

    I would recommend you taking the Higher paper. What our teachers used to tell us in Year 11 is to focus on getting the max out of the first 15 questions which would be about 50 marks then build on from there.

    Practising questions helps drastically! There's many available to you online.
