I sat the exam in June after changes and just received my result.
The questions are usually much longer than Uworld.
You must be quick! I used to have 10-15/min spare time per block when doing Uworld. In the actual exam I barely could have 5 min to go over marked questions.

I sat on exam on 30th of June.... I was used to uworld questions.... But in the exam the questions were so large that I could barely do the last question of 2 blocks..... They are also much harder than uworld..... Don't know what will happen to me.... Practise so that you always have 10 minutes free time per block
