    I'm in higher set maths, but after struggling with the numeracy mock I queried opting for the intermediate numeracy paper instead. This would give me a maximum grade of B, which do you think would be better?

    So because you did bad on the numeracy mock, you want to move to do intermediate
    You know there is something called trying
    Try but never fail to try
    Keep practicing until you achieve a higher grade
    What year you in?

    what the hell is intermediate, there is no intermediate. there's just 2 tiers, higher and foundation.

    Intermediate tier is still available in WJEC's Maths GCSE, iirc, and is the tier in-between Foundation and Higher. (it used to be available in the UK (only for Maths, I believe), I think before ~2010, before being scrapped)

    To the OP: Don't give up, and try to keep at it! Mocks don't define a "maximum grade"
