How are prelims graded? are they Distinction, merit, pass or just distinction, pass and fail (if at all they call it fail)? and what are the grade boundaries for each one?

Thanks

I think it is Distincton, Pass, Fail - at least it used to be for history. For boundaries, are you a student already? If so, check your handbook. If not try googling for Prelims and the subject to see if the handbook is online. Basically, the boundaries may not be the same for all subjects and they are not necessarily a straight score - for instance distinction can be based on a combination of an average across all papers AND mark over x in at least y papers.
