    Basically in year 10 I did higher paper for triple science and got u but I didn't revise so that's my fault.

    In year 11 back in November I got a u again in my science but I was 3 marks off for a grade 4

    My teacher recommended to do foundation for March mocks but when I went in to the exam hall I saw that I was doing higher paper. I know I failed it so I will be transferred to do the Foundation paper for gcse
    The thing is I've got asian parents and I've been getting tutored for science and I want to do higher but my teacher is very stubborn.
    How could I persuade her to put me for higher for my gcse exams??
    Advice now please

    You may have left it too late - why should your teacher believe you now when all the evidence you have given us suggests you should be doing Foundation - but wait to see how you did in the recent mock.

    Is there a possibility that I can do the higher paper if I got a grade 4

    It's not too late for the school to change the exam entry they've made with the exam board but whether they will or not is up to them.

    Do you do any extra work at school?

    One of the reasons your teacher probably recommended you do foundation was because they think it's too hard for you to pass doing higher or you aren't putting in the work. If you honestly are going to put the work in I would do past papers and give them to your teacher to mark, and to show that you are trying to improve. Also, maybe attend after school revision sessions. You'll have to do a lot more revision on top of that though. If you don't end up doing higher remember you can still pass doing foundation. Good luck.
