Depends what residency you want
But 228 is enough for many residencies, so of course you will.
Its 1pt away from "99" so please stop complaining "-_- lol

Yes Dr.Nick i agree with you.
I think people who already have done an exam and got their score have to know what is a good score or what is bad !

Yep!! 228 is a very good score!

It's like winning the silver medal in the Olympics. You were aiming for gold, but you missed it for only 0.02 seconds. Things aren't always under our control. At some point, we need to let go.

The important thing is you did your best and it was a great run.

Congrats!!
