    Hi -
    I'm doing the 2018 GCSE series and i am dreading it. I know it's a bad attitude to have but I'm going to fail maths; there is no point in beating around the bush. I have never been good at maths even in Year 1 and I really don't understand it now. I'm doing foundation tier as my school say I am but I really want to do higher because the grade boundaries were really low for the 2017 Edexcel Maths paper for higher, you needed 68 out of 240 and foundation you needed 150 ish. Would I be better off doing higher number do try and get the grade 4 I desperately need?
