Kriti, did you try Marcus Green mocks?
(http://www.jchq.net/mockexams/exam1.htm http://www.jchq.net/mockexams/exam2.htm http://www.jchq.net/mockexams/exam3.htm)
They are about as difficult as real exam and are said to be the best predicting tools My own score were only about 3% different.
Other mocks can be either easier or more difficult than real exam. I am not sure about MindQ and Barry Boone's exams, I glanced at the latter and it seems close to the real thing. So 80% are good score compared to 61% you need to pass.
However, it is always hard to predict somebody�s score on the real exam, because of many influencing factors, ability to manage stress as the most important. Anyway, in all these days before your exam, you should take as many mocks as possible. If your goal is to pass, and not to achieve killing scores, I would advice to concentrate on basic fundamental topics and skip too �advanced� features. For example, you should know very well object casting up and down the hierarchy tree, but you can relax on casting arrays to interfaces. Due to my observations, weird questions are rare pop up on the real exam.
Oh, most important - good luck!

Hi Kriti,
Also try Bill Brogden's Mock, Jamie Jaworski's Mock and Mahji's Mock along with any others you can fit in.
The full list is at http://www.javaranch.com/mock.jsp
Mapraputa is right, it is very hard to predict a real score based on the Mock exam scores. The mocks do help identify areas where your weak.
Best of luck on the 25th!
