    I Basically was 5 marks away from passing in my GCSE maths exam last summer but my teacher said it would be to far to be remarked. We only had around a month and a couple of weeks before re-sits and I failed my maths again I actually got worse. I keep doing foundation and it just gets me vexed because I keep failing. I now want to do higher so I have a better chance I know it's gonna be harder at the end but half it its foundation anyway. I have like 4/5 months before GCSE exams. Is it worth it or risky.

    It is most definitely worth it. You need 65/200 to get a C so there is lots of space for errors . The paper feels easier as you don't have to worry about making errors whilst in the foundation paper you need 70% to pass. I suggest working with past papers

    Do higher tier, it's a lot easier to pass on there.

    I think Higher might be well worth a go. Of course, you will need to convince your teacher.
