@Elaina: Depende de si ya hiciste el examen o estás por hacerlo.
El presente en español a veces funciona como futuro.

·Yo creo que sí me dan el empleo.
I think they will give me the job.

·Te veo mañana.
I'll see you tomorrow.

·¿Vienes a verme?
·Will you come and see me?

·Llegan el lunes.
They'll be here on Monday.

Yes, I understand all that but I was talking about the English part of the sentence.

The English translation is using this notion. You haven't had the test yet and you reckon it will be easy.

I'm not saying your translation is wrong, but it's referring to the case when you're doing the test and you're finding it easy.
As there is no context, both options are equally valid.

I agree with Rusty. Maybe, if you think it's easier for you, there could be another translation for that sentences using the conjunction:

"Creo que este examen es fácil / creo que este examen será fácil"

Hope it helps!!
