Not true. The international exams, like the ones given in Asia and the UK/Europe actually are different than the USA exams. This has been extensively catalogued. It is why the international exams are not released.

I've been told the contrary, but I believe you, it makes more sense. They are the same difficulty correct though? I reckon they change some of the content because of time zone differences, hence why the Canadian and American tests are identical.


Ive taken both the USA and international exams. Trust me, they are different. The asian and european exams are not the same as the US/canadian ones. They are hypothetically the same as they have the same curve, but who knows? My international ones were I thought much more difficult than my USA one, and I have heard others share the same thought.
