They are designed using a special algorithm that figures out where your weaknesses are, based on the answers to the questions (which are pulled randomly from a large pool). If your doing poorly in one area, the software will start hitting you with more questions in that area, and yes, they will become more difficult.
The "cutoff" is a based on this algorithm. It figures out, based on the amount of questions remaining, if you can still pass based on your continued performance.
My network tests were crazy. I had 7 separate tests to take, and each test was 15 to 35 questions, with 45 minutes to complete any one test. some were t/f, multiple choice, and some were you had to complete a simulation.
I agree, it's quite unnerving when it simply cuts you off and ends the test.
