    As of a week ago, my Teacher's made it obligatory for me to do the Foundation paper for science. My exam is on Tuesday, and they haven't responded to my email. Will there be enough time to change it?
    I don't know what to do. For one, foundation papers are insulting and diminishes my self esteem; two, I'm not terrible at Science, just only achieving D's and C's. What should I do?

    I have a friend who asked to be moved onto the Foundation paper for Chemistry yesterday, and they were informed that it was too late to adjust the papers you are entered for at this point, however it would be worth asking your school to be certain. I'd argue that there's nothing wrong with Foundation papers; they just include low-demand questions as opposed to the high-demand questions, however I can appreciate why you'd be upset as I would be too if my teacher had done so without my permission.
