My ocpjp exam comes up next week. is there any mock exam that is really close to the real exam. I did ethunware's most missed test and scored 53%, should i be freaking out?

No! Most missed test contains questions that are answered wrong most often. So it is normal to score less on it. 53% is actually very good. You should try one of the Standard Tests and see how you score. If you score 53% on those, then you should be freaking out
You might want to check out the score comparison between Standard Test and the real exam given here:

the question in exam are much easier than you find in various mock tests. My advice go through the "self-test" questions given at the end of Kathy Sierra.
And you are good to go

I did the OCP java se 6 programmer practice exams, on practice exam 1 got 67%, on practice exam 2 I got 72% and on the final practice exam, I got 70% is that good enough?
does the exam still provide the number of correct answer(s) for each question? reply needed urgently. Thank you.

Hey ohimai,
I passed the exam last week and was freaking out because I was averaging 60% on the mock exams that came with Kathy Sierra's book.
However, I got 83% on the real exam!
I think I found the real exam easier because they tell you how many answers to choose, which the mock exams didn't, and the questions are shorter.

Of course, I still had to study A LOT to succeed.

Good luck to you.

To my experience, don't get stressed out with what scores you get in any mock exam.
During the real exam, focus on answering the questions and do the best you can.

The day before the exam, review KB's self-tests will help.

If you still have time before the exam, do some practice exams from KB. These 4 practice exams will help.
I agree. Here's the link:
