Question Is it really that Internal Medicine half of the CK questions?

What is the proportion of Internal Med questions to the rest of the specialties (OBG, Paeds, Psych, Surgery)?

In USMLE World, there are 1400 IM questions and for the rest of the specialties combined, about 830 questions. This is roughly 2:1 ratio and I was wondering whether the real CK exam is like this too?

About 2/3 of the exam tests Internal Medicine and the rest 1/3 of the exam tests in combination all of OBG, Paeds, Psych, Surgery?

Many thanks.
