  1. Average versus above average is often based on physical appearance and how well one 'fits in'.
  2. I think it is fine to have something to test IMGs with, but CMGs shouldn't have to do this waste of an exam.
  3. I can't comment on specific programs, but a good measure of a program's quality is how successful the graduating classes are in being selected for competitive fellowships.

It also does not offer spots that are exclusively for FMGs, which many Canadian programs, through political pressure from well-connected families with children in foreign schools, have been pressured to do, which smacks of corruption.
