Default Real exam vs. UW

I think it would be great if those who recently took the exam can comment about the real exam question length vs UW stem length. I've heard from a few people that UW stems were much smaller than the real exam q stems and some say they're the same and vice versa.

A friend who recently took the exam said UW stems are way shorter and told me to be ready for page long stems. If anyone can shed some light on this that would be great for us future CK takers and also let us know how UW compares to the real exam in terms of difficulty of the questions.

this is exactly what i wanted to know as well...

i religiously read the exam experiences that are being posted, apparently people who took the exam in jan and feb said the actual exam was different from UW and those who took it in april and may said it was exactly UW or UWSA. this is probably because UW changed its questions according to the new step2changes.

one of the review actually mentioned that the actual exam had a bigger font-size so it seemed longer but it wasnt in reality
