In the uk, can you ask to do higher grade GCSE papers if you are in bottom set?
And are there any ways to move up sets fast?

hi previously my friends got their parents to call the school to get them moved to higher paper however they had to prove they could do the maths by working hard in mocks

there could be others ways but this is what i’ve seen works

I would say discuss it with your current teacher. Tell them your intentions and ask them to assess you (you should by this time be able to take the assessment confidently, otherwise hold off until you can), from there I'm sure you'll be moved to the set that's better suited to you.

best to talk to your teacher about this. if you're performing well above average consistently for your set in tests and assessments this will likely increase your chances of moving up sets.

First person to speak to would be your teacher and see what they suggest, if you feel you can move up a set and think you are being held back tell the teacher, they will probs then speak to the head of department and get you to sit an assessment to see what your ability is and then choose whether to move you up or not.

Yeah I agree with most of these comments. I would speak to your teacher about whether you can do the higher paper and why you think you can do well on it.
About moving sets, again I would also talk to your teacher, maybe say you aren't being challenged enough, you think you could do harder work, you think you would like to learn more, but only say this if you actually think this. And prove to them, you should move up, work hard in class/tests etc, but defo talk to them. If that doesn't work, get your parents to talk to them Good luck!
