USMLE Scores Step 1 score 236 / 84

I just received my step 1 score . I don't understand the poor correlation between the 3 digit (236) and the 2digit (84)
I graduated on 2005 and I did a complete OBGYN residency in Peru, and have 1 year experience as an attending in Peru.
Now I am trying to get into a OBGYN residency program.
Does anyone know if this is a good score for an IMG and for OBGYN residency?
I am already a OBGYN in my country, Is it a plus for my application?
I hope you guys can help me, I am a little bit stressed.

They've changed the 2-digit scoring system. In the old system, 236 was worth 98-99.

It's just another way for them to try to remind people that 2-digit scores don't matter.

Default Score 236

I forgot to mention that 3 days before the Step1 I solved the USMLE Free TEST and in the Step 1 there were 4 questions that were a copy-paste from the free test.
There were just 4 questions but during the stress of the exam it made me feel more confident.

hi i think your score is great for obsgyn
in FA there is a chart representing the scores of american docs in several specialties in their step 1 exam , u can check it up but your score is great good job.
