    I think that in order to start to get your teachers’ attention, you should speak to them and explain to them how you feel. Tell them that you feel you would like to have the challenge of the higher maths paper. There’s nothing wrong with a student wanting high grades. Your teachers should be able to give you advice on what you can do in order to be able to take the test paper.

    I would also recommend doing extra work outside of school hours as well to allow yourself to push your limits and really grasp the higher content that will appear in the exams. By doing so, not only will your level hopefully increase, but the teachers will see that you are capable of achieving the high marks in the higher test papers.

    Good luck!
