I think even if the paper was an easier one, doing it in 35 minutes is fantastic as time is always an issue on the day. It's also been proven that doing tests/exams with a positive frame of mind definitely helps the scores.
My DS certainly ran out of time in the real test but luckily only the last 5 had to be guessed on the VR (told him never to leave a blank - you never know!).
NVR was a very different story - 15+ unanswered/guessed at due to lack of time.
Still - only a couple of days until we find out the damage.
