If you're not passing the mock exams, it sounds like you're not ready for the real exam. I'd "reset" my expectations and allow enough time (a few months?) to really study and let the information sink in and don't try to rush just to pass, try to really learn the material.
I took a lot of mock exams my mock exam results are the same as the real exam results, with 5-10% higher score in real exam.

All I can tell you is that I just passed the SCWCD exam and I used two books and went through each about 4 times each. The first time through, though, I highlighted items that were significant and worth memorizing for the test. Each time through, I read less and less and focused on the highlighted items. As I did practice tests and realized what I did not know, I read up on those items and highlighted what was important to know for the things I had trouble with. So the week before the test I was able to quickly review through both books just focusing on the important items.

I think you must study harder than you've done so far, by using several mocks available over the Internet.
When you get a score higher than 90% on the most difficult exam, consider yourself prepared.
Also try to remember the questions you had problems, and try to write the code untill it's working fine. It's a good technique to remember how to solve that kind of question.
Search over Internet or even here in this site to these mocks.
