My son has just received his mock exam results in English- he is sitting on a D/C grade and his teacher has told him that he will be doing the Foundation paper next week. He has asked if he can do the higher paper as he needs a "B" grade for the sixth form he wants to go to. The fact he has been entered for the Foundation exam has never been mentioned to his father and myself even though we recently attended a parents evening. What will the implications be if he does the foundation paper and gets a C, or would he be able to do the higher paper? Any advice at such short notice would be gratefully appreciated as this is all very confusing.
