    Ok, in mathematics I have really struggled and I have started by gcse course and my math teacher isn't the best at explaining. I think it is best for me to move down a set (maybe two sets) so I could progress and not be confused about everything she teaches. My teach brought it up at parents evening but my mum wants me to stay in the second set (there are six sets at my school). My mum thinks that I am trying to get out of doing work but i think it would help me a lot. How would I go about it telling my strict parents I need to be in a lower set, but also get moved down without failing a test because are next test is far away and they are more important mock exams.

    Glad I dont have your parents.

    You need to make sure the other teacher is better.

    If so then just tell your mum the teacher is better and its still the same GCSE at the end where you believe you will get a better grade. End of. They obviously have some weird idea that theres some sort of prestige attached which is strange. They should want the best for you. Nobody will care or remember what set you were in when you get the results.
