I'm sorry to hear that your school's advisor isn't helping.

Maybe try emailing some of the maths teachers at your school for advise? If that doesn't work, reach out to your local colleges, they should be able to offer you an opportunity to take the exam (maybe for a small fee).

Also if you're not confident that you're going pass, I would advise investing in a tutor if you can. Yes it's a short term expense, but if you get your dream university, I think it's very much worth it!

I've also heard that it's actually easier to get a 6 in higher than it is in Foundation due to the percentage required to get the grade.

Some unis will also offer you a place with the requirement of accepting maths help and taking the exam in your first year. Maybe try contacting the admissions team?

yes that is why i kind of just want to do the exam and somewhat idk only get around 50-60% to get a 6 in higher. Thank you for your response (:

You can resit in November, entry deadline is the end of September. Your sixth from should let you take it there but you may have to pay. I suggest you start working on it now - there are lots of online resources. On the upside you only need to get around 45% for a 6 in Higher tier (that was the Edexcel grade boundary in Summer 2019)
