Default Comment on FA cases

hi guys
FA cases are designed to make u come up with more than one ddx like alot of diff diagnosis
in the new format i heard the cases will be very dry such that only 1 or 2 ddx's are possible
is that true? this means that the exm is now easier but the passing standards is harder? am i getting this right?
