    No, just your feeling about it, 74+ means very easy, 70-74 means easy and so on...

    My feeling? So you just coincidentally put your "feeling" scale on the exact same scale as the exam marks out of 75...?

    predictions for grade boundaries - anyone who's done a lot of S2 past papers, was it generally harder/easier than previous years?

    I would guess I got 64/75 and need 80UMS

    That seems too high, I would say 62 max

    no I meant i think that i got 64/75 in the exam, and I need 80UMS.

    But I'll be happy if the grade boundary is 62 or less, which seems about right as it seems it was harder than last years by a fair bit

    Agree, anyway 64 is definitely an A

    Easier I'd say. But I have done a lot of past papers, so i guess i got good at it.

    Easier in that there were fewer fiddly questions, but I think some people might have been thrown by some of the slightly unusual ones. I think 64 is quite likely to be 80 UMS.
