    How difficult is USMLE for Pakistani graduates


    I am particularly interested in knowing how difficult it is for Pakistani med schools graduates to do well at USMLE.I understand that every year many Pakistani graduates get residency matchs but are they all above average IQ people or simply its the hard work which pays.Usually Pak med schools emphasize only on memorization and less stress is laid upon conceptualization so how do the students who become used to(and also studied atleast 5 yrs in the same format) do well at USMLE?

    I would also highly appreciate if one could elaborate some info about format of USMLE ,is it basically an IQ/aptitude test to filter only exceptional students or simply even an average IQ student can get a good score ,by just hard work OR in other words is it a BRAIN TEST or HARD WORK TEST?
