Clock Length of Step 1 Questions!

Of those who have taken the test recently how did you find the question stem length?

My friend who recently took it told me that many of the questions were >5 lines long and he was a little pressed for time. I wanted to know if any of you all had the same experience.

Thanks for confirming my suspicion. I take my exam in 2 days, been finishing UWORLD usually with 5-7 minutes extra. How was it compared to UWORLD/NBMEs?
