Maybe getting 85% is easy in your field :)
I taught mathematics at both the University of Toronto, Canada and the
University of Maryland, USA (comparable courses) for a few years each.
And I can tell you that 85% means wildly different things in those two
universities. In Maryland mediocre students are expected to get 70%!!
When I went to school (Venezuela) I was one of the best students and my
grade was 70%. Canada is somewhere in between, where 70% might be the mean.

You're missing the point. If you're having a life crisis, or if you just
didn't sleep well the previous night, that *will* affect your
performance regardless of the subject.

That's a good point. Practical tests are more adaptable.
