Professionalism and rapport has not been updated recently it's the same 5 years ago and today.

The trend that you are talking about is not new, CIS has always been the number one reason IMGs fail.

Factors potentially contributing to IMG failure in CIS:
  • Cultural differences.
  • Language difficulties such as unclear accent.
  • The stress of the exam (we forgot to act normal).
  • Lack of appropriate training (AMGs start training for the CS from day one in med school while IMGs do not).
I don't think your friend followed what mentioned in the thread I referred you to. He must have missed many of those points or he must have had some other issues in his communication skills.
