yep that's right u need literally majority of the paper to get the C..

people tend to say that if u do higher it's easier to get a C

think about it this way sam.. on average in higher paper u need bwt 60% right to get a C while on a higher paper usually 80% .. yes the questions are easier in foundation but then again we all make some silly mistakes risking the chance of u losin a C

for foundation i think you need to get almost everything right to get a c.

getting a C in a foundation paper is like getting an A(*) in a higher paper to be honest. it may be hard to achieve a C in foundation but the questions are easier but it's so easy to accidently loose valuable marks.

Higher paper is actually easier than the foundation paper, but the questions are more like 'explain' or 'evaluate' or 'describe' or 'why'... But you only need about half of the paper correct to get a good grade in higher, but in foundation you need to get all of the questions right to get a C. Hope this helps :)

you would need to get more marks on the foundation to get a C but less on the higher. However, questions on the higher questions tend to be a lot harder

I think its easier to get a grade c on a foundation as the paper is much more easier than higher however in terms of marks, the grade boundary to get a grade c is a lot easier on a higher paper rather than a foundation paper

They need to bring back the intermediate paper :)
