no reply I see

does the change they made for reporting2 digit score will affect the match as previusly it was announced that 2 digit score is nomore in use???
if now 2 persons got the same 3 digit score but different in 2 digit score (due to these new rules) will that affect their status when they apply for the match???

From what I understand all applications that were reviewed (before the new rule) that program directors really looked at only 3 digits. If two people have same scores then they would go by if IMG vs AMG, grades... since reports that will be sent now will only be 3 digits.

I am not sure either too, hahaha. All I know is that the 2 digit is not really a % score but a way to represent the 3 digit score. I think 2 digit hard gauge someone since 2 people with the same 3 digit score can have different 2 digit score (only those with, I think 240+, get 99 ).

I believe two the two digit score one comes into play for your state licensing (or I guess now, it used too). Program directors key in on the three digit score since any where from a high 230 to the highest score possible on the test is a "99".
