Today i sat 2 Spanish exams-A listening one and a reading one. During class i have always done foundation tier practice past papers, however, when i entered the exam hall i was told that i was to do the higher reading paper and the foundation listening paper. This completely and utterly surprised me as my teacher had always stated that i was to do both foundation papers. I then halted the exam as i need to clarify what paper i was doing, so i went to the teachers classroom and asked her. She stated i was to do higher reading and foundation listening. When i returned to the exam hall i attempted the higher paper but it was too hard as most of the words in there i had never seen before.
My question is this-Can i appeal the paper and get to do a foundation tier reading. Also can i get this teacher into any trouble as prior to the exam i had no clue that i was to do higher reading. The mark i get on the higher tier exam could heavily influence my overall grade in a bad way.
Thanks for the help.

You could probably make a case for complaining about the teacher to the school if she always informed you you'd do both foundation papers.
Did you get a statement of entry from your school where you had to check the exams you were entered for? If you did, then the Higher paper would have been on there, and that would make it very difficult to get anywhere with an appeal.
Also, I very much doubt you'd be able to do the foundation paper this series at any rate, since everyone else has now already completed it.
