Right guys!
Is it just me that finds it stupid that on a foundation paper you cannot get a grade 6 to 9! My maths teecher told me that 100 percent would only get me a grade 5. On a higher paper a grade 7 is 45 percent. As this is what I got on my foundation paper shouldn’t I have been awarded a grade 7 not a 2? The people with low targets are being discriminated against especially considearing I revise for 5 minutes a day JUST ON MATHS . I was hoping for a grade 8 but I’m not sure it’s going to happen any help from people would be greatly appreciated! Thanks guys✌️

5 minutes a day is nothing. If you want to do the higher paper, you need to be doing at least 1 hour, preferably 2 but making sure it is effective time. 5 minutes is barely enough time to get your notebook open and sharpen your pencil.

It is fair, because the foundation paper allows the less mathsy people a chance at passing their GCSE. If they did the higher they might not.

I didn't revise for my GCSE's and got 8 A's, 2 B's, and 2 C's.

That being said, five minutes isn't even enough to read through a past paper. You should be doing like, an hour or two a night on weekdays and like three or four hours on weekends.

I take coursework subjects now so it's technically not hypocrisy :P

Well it seems to be working though. I’ll try to do more then. And I’d pass a higher paper any day!!
