    Basically , I have a maths class that is mixed with people doing Foundation and Higher paper , my maths teacher sometimes pulls them out of class when we do higher level work.But the content we do is so easy 4/5/6 . We never do 7/8 grade topic which really annoys me as the higher paper contains many hard topics that won’t be covered . As well as the fact she’s admitted that our class is NOT gonna cover all the content for Edexcel Gcse maths . I really want a good grade ( 6/7 ) for maths at this point I don’t know what to do ?

    Same happens with me, I’m in second top set and don’t mean to sound weird but probably the cleverest but i still have to do the foundation paper with the rest of them, although I’m in Year 9, and I score really high. I feel like I’m not learning anything

    Can you not speak to the teacher or get your parents to complain? They’re bound to listen to you or in your spare time do some higher level revision, that’s what I do to get top marks on mine

    I would complain to the teacher and/or headteacher. Also try and teach yourself the content you are wanting to learn using YouTube and other mathematical websites
