    I think it will be bearing in mind that the paper was roughly comparable in difficulty to paper 2 last year.
    Are you having a laugh?

    Last year's was easy as pie - 69/90 without revision.

    This year I revised and I found it much more difficult.

    Just under 77% and you can an exam easy? :-P
    I'm not inclined to call an exam easy unless I get full marks, which, to be honest, doesn't happen all that often.

    OK OK, I'll give you that one. LOL.

    It's just that all you needed for an A* last year in paper 2 was 63/90...

    Exactly, alot of people found last year's paper 2 difficult, people seem to have found this one difficult to, presumably the boundaries should be about the same.
