    Alright, so keep in mind before you do consider entering Higher Tier:
    The LAST Questions from the Foundation paper are the start of the Higher Tier.
    If you can't do them, even if you have tried i suggest not doing take the Higher paper.
    I'm not trying to put you down or anything, but there's the truth.

    Well, you have to pretty much get ALL the questions right before the staples in the Higher Tier to retrieve a C Grade.

    I'm very surprised that you have a choice. Most schools will decide for you!
