  1. The CARMS stats are more useful for an average applicant who most likely ranks their top choice field +/- a back up and end up matching within top 3 of their ROL. That's different than someone who is ranking 3 programs from 3 different fields - harder to tailor your application and electives to convince a program that they're you're top choice. This probably also gets skewed more because large fields like FM/IM have higher match rates, and so probably (?) higher chances of being in your top 3 choices.

I think if you were dedicated, you could pull a pass but test taking skills won't help if you don't have the knowledge to back it up and you're missing at least half of the content then.
