Question How much does it matter where and when you write?

I assume it is all randomized and writing in certain locations as oppose to others is not helpful? I know 4 people who took the exam in the states, and 3 who took in Canada, and the ones in Canada made it seem easier, it may just be me

Also is there a big difference between writing in Dec or Jan as far as competition wise?

Hi!
I don't think it matters where you take it or when you take it.
Alot of us are taking it in march-june and we are all IMGs! And even in this forum alot of students are taking it during that time...
