Sample Exam

I know I am a little late with this, but I took my first sample exam (not the mock). I was worried about time so I tried to be quick and focused and ended up finishing with a slightly more than an hour left in time. My score was 70% on the dot. I have a feeling that this exam is much easier than the mock exams (which is coming up next week along with the BSAS exam on Saturday). Can anyone who wrote the mocks confirm if the samples are drastically easier? Thanks.
