      i got the same in ordinary but i have to stay in ordinary as foundation is not recognised in college i hope with grinds and extra study i will but its risky and you need maths for college i would give it another month and if you feel your still at that level drop to ordinary it is a good enough jump

      Well i think honours maths take a lot of time and understanding so if u think u cant keep up with the work u should and many students went to pass from my class

      If you got that DEB mock I'll advise you to stay at HL as it was a horrible paper! I got 64% and the teacher said I could get an A1 in June.

      Lads in my school last year got in the twenties and all got Bs and Cs so its more than achievable!

      Good luck!

      If you think you'll be able to work hard enough in the next few months to get up to the 40% then stick with it because even a pass in higher is more points than an A1 in ordinary! It's also easier to pass the real thing because of all the attempt marks also my economics teacher told our class that she corrected the LC maths papers a year or two ago and was told to pass everyone from 30% up. I think this is due to the fact that they're bringing in a new system in the next few years where people can still get points even if they fail. I'm not sure whether that will be the case again this year however, or if she was even supposed to tell us that. On the other hand though, if theres a high possibility of failing it's not worth the risk.
