It is an excellent score. Do not worry about the 2 digit scores as they aren't reported to the programs anymore. according to the last scale for CK 99 was anything above 226.

congrats!! dude on such an awesome score, but it made me smile when i saw your post regarding the 2 digit scale. Apparently 99 system has been outdated for more than a year now and it seems ,you my friend were totally unaware. Best of luck for the future man..

It is NOT a percentile!!!!!!!!!!!!!
A 248 is a great score and thats what progs see!! Stop worrying about nothing, esp since this has been discussed for over a year and is all over the forums!!
