If you feel you should do higher then ask your teacher for a practice test to show you are capable of achieving it. Also don't loose hope, what I recommend is going through the maths specification (the topics) and looking at things you struggle with. Make notes then attempt a question on the topic as if you were sitting the exam (no phone, textbook or help.) You could also look into getting a tutor or ask your teacher for extra help or after school revision sessions.
If you want resources to help revise I recommend the CGP revision guide and the TUTOR2U flashcards.(Can be found online)

Actually dont feel dumb. Our exam board (edexcel) has revealed that it is more harder to reach a 5 in higher maths than it is in foundation. You just need more marks because the first 12 or so questions are leve 1 question!!! Trust me.

How much revision are you doing before these? Because it may be due to a lack of revision.

Im currently set to do higher but (For AQA atleast) you only need half marks on all the maths test to achieve a 7.I have struggled with focussing and revision but I allowed myself to see that I have big exams coming up and now im focusing and set to pass my exams. If you want to improve you have to revise. Your not going to get anywere by avoiding it. I know it may be hard to concentrate but once you start and get a rhythm and schedule for it you should be able to get the hang of it. Also refer back to my first reply for tips.
