USMLE Scores Step 1 Score 232

hey people
I am new to this forum. I want honest opinion. I have got a 232 on step 1. I was really surprised to see the national average is 222 now. I am an IMG. I wanted to know if I still have a chance of getting residency on this score given that the US national average is higher now.
My 2 digit was 83, will that matter. previously 228 above was 99. Now I am confused
please help

Two digit scores dont count anymore. Forget about them. Residencies will only see 3 digit scores. Period.
