In regards to maths, the general trend (in the actual LC, not mocks) is for them to get harder, because otherwise they would be forced to issue the same questions over again (with different numbers, obviously...) so I was quite happy when my teacher said that he's mixing in some questions of his own to make the mock that bit harder.
Overall, I don't think mocks are any more difficult, but it would be quite common to raise about 50 points or so by the LC, simply through having studied more, lets face it, the LC is based a hell of a lot more on what you can learn off by heart than on on how actually talented/able you are. So it's logical to assume that you've learned a few extra pieces of information between the mock and the LC
