i think the best thing is to ask your school about the level system and what you need to get to do a higher paper

in terms of revision, maths is one of those subjects that doesn't necessary require memorisation but skills. In order to do well you need to practise loads of exam papers. I suggest your practise exam questions and see your weak points. Then revise on those subjects. 

Sources you could try...

- Maths Watch CD

- My Maths -if your school supplies

- Exam papers from the board your doing

- Khan Academy

Good luck !

I would say that you should be at a high enough level. At my school everyone who was level 6C or above was allowed to attempt the higher paper but if it looked like they were struggling they would be put into a different class studying for the foundation paper.

As for revision I would just do as many questions as possible. I got an A* at GCSE and hopefully going to get an A or B at A level and this was only through constant practice. I found BBC bitesize good for learnin ghtings that were difficult but most of the time I would just practice by doing extra questions out of the textbook.

(Also my teachers say that a level 6 is the same as a D at GCSE so your teachers should let you do the higher paper because you will have to years to improve this. Basically you are on the right track to do higher in my opinion)

then i guess Usman the key now is practise exam papers constantly until you get full marks, 

past papers show your weak points, strong points and careless mistakes u make
