I don't remember the details of statistics, I'm afraid. It's 1.8 standard deviations away from the mean, which means it's between the 84th and 97th percentile or so.

Actually, sorry, I think that's about the 95th percentile.

don't i do the mean minus 4 standard deviation because percentile means go to the left?

Well, they're asking (I think), if you got a 74 on the test, what percentile is that. So 74 - 64.3 = 9.7 which is about 1.8 * 5.4, which means we're about 1.8 standard deviations away from the mean.
