I think higher as it requires less marks to pass, but foundation content is easier but then you need a lot of marks

It depends on the person. They're designed that, on average, the difficulty is the same but some people might find it easier with a paper they find more accessible (Foundation) and others might have erratic abilities that make Higher worth a go.

(Only Maths, Sciences and MFL have tiers.)

I did higher but I think it depends on the questions, at least in maths. I feel like i would fail certain higher papers because of the questions and might have been better off doing foundation, but I am confident with grade 8/9 topics in class and when it comes to applying it in context (in an exam) thats when it gets hard. Even the old gcse, application questions are hard for me. General grade 3 questions are hard for me as well as application in foundation papers, I am good with factual harder topics but not application.
