Hi. Tomorrow I am taking the ACS General Chem 1 exam as a final. It's supposed to be 40 questions but I heard it is incredibly difficult. I currently have a 95% in my class and need to get at least 24 out of 40 to get an A for the semester. The problem is that my class was so easy (we got to use note cards on tests, open note quizzes, effort based homework) while this test is supposed to be hard AND it's not open note. I also heard there is a curve although I do not know how much.

What grade did you guys get on it if you have taken it (without the curve).
