    Hello everyone,

    I was to do higher tier, I am only at the start of year ten but I got put down a week later into the foundation tier after requesting to be moved down a class. I want to change from foundation to higher tier is that possible or am I too late?

    It's only too late when you've actually been entered for your GCSE's, technically. However, to be learning the right standard you will really want to be in the right class ASAP. talk to your head of department or teacher.

    yes but it helps to have more practise doing higher papers (e.g. during mocks) is my point

    And I agree, but there is plenty of time to revise doing past papers for Higher tier during your exam leave.

    Hi everyone thanks so much for the information. I am actually learning the higher tier work online and at home. I need to move up a few classes to be doing the higher tier exam. Does anyone know any good maths websites?

    Actually, it's not too late. On the day of our Maths GCSE exams, people could still change be tier, however it'd cost the school money, as they had to purchase more higher tier/foundation tier papers
