    In maths I am set 5 out of 7 sets
    My teacher said that I am going to do foundation paper which only goes up to a C
    But the college I want o attend requires a maths B
    What can I do to change her mind and do higher paper
    Thank you

      Ask your teacher for reasons why this this
      Do you think that the teacher is right?
      Do you think that you can achive above a C grade?
      If you do ask the teacher to give you a chance at doing a higher maths paper
      Also if your parents or whoever you live with agree with you ask them to contact your school

      Hope that helped

      prove to her that you are a B student!

      ask her if you could take a previous higher paper test home to prove to her that you could achieve higher than a grade C. (and do it under exam conditions.)
      perhaps she feels it is safer for you to do the foundation paper.
      I would say the best option is to get your parents to go into the school and talk to the head teacher about it otherwise it will never get sorted and you wont get any real confirmation that you can do the higher paper.
      Best of luck with your exams
