    Ive just got home from school and have been told i'm in the B side of the school for year 10 (So i will be doing the lower paper) But i know as a fact i'm more capable than a C. in fact in the test we took to determine if we will be doing the Higher or lower paper i scored second highest in the class, (26/45) Yet with people who had scores like 16/45 they have managed to be doing the higher paper, What should I do if i know i should be on A side!?

    Talk to the head of department at the start of next term (there's no point hoping they'll get back to you in the holidays - even if they read your email they probably won't have easy access to the data to see if your request is reasonable.)
