I’ve been doing foundation for a while now and I am doing very well consistently and I would like to move up to higher but head of department isn’t moving me up whilst he is moving others up I am currently being tutored higher maths therefore I know the content I really need to do higher as I want to do A level maths I am in year 11 it is vital I move up quickly.

I don’t understand why you’re not being allowed to change to the higher tier. Have you told them that you’re being tutored? See if you can find out from them why you can’t move up. Surely they can see you’re grades are improving. It’ll be such a shame being capable for the higher tier and to be stuck on foundation.

keep on telling them that you want to do higher try next week and do not stop until they say yes. If they still say no ask your parents to speak to the deputy head/head of curriculum/ head of maths. If you do not try to do this you will regret it as a level maths is a great a level to have. Maybe ask one of the teachers to give you a higher paper test and see if you can get a grade 5 or above. However to do a level maths you will need a grade 6 or above so if you do foundation you cannot do a level maths. Also a lot of science and maths a levels ask for a 6 in maths, for example in A level Biology/Chemistry you will need at least a 6-6 in combined science or a 6 in triple science in that subject and a 6 in maths. Hope this helps

No worries. That’s completely understandable. I would be annoyed to if I was in your situation. I just really hope they eventually listen and move you up. It’s clear that you’re working very hard and deserve to be moved up! Make sure you keep pushing them and don’t accept no for an answer. All the best and hope you get to do A level maths.

it's the exact same with me but my school didn't let me move up as they said it will be too risky for there reputation. so I had to do foundation. however I got a grade 5 and I'm in six form

same happend to me but I was in year 11. so at this point I couldnt do anything so carried on the way I was working and got a 5 then I rang my teacher to confront her and gave a complaint to the head. if I was you every test you get make sure you revise it properly and do well on the tests. I would also recommend you that you ask your teacher that you want to move up so then they can keep an eye on you. remember keep on bugging your teacher, plus you may have parents evening soon so you could tell your to ask and if she still says no on that day just go to the head of maths with your parents

you know when you said that you need a 6 in maths you don't necessarily. I got a 5 in maths foundation and wanted to do accounting which was a 6. my argument was that i asked to do higher maths but teacher wouldn't let me and I worked my socks of to get that 5. good luck with moving I hope u the best
