I've attached a conversion table. I'm not sure where this came from, but it seems to correlate correctly with what other people have reported about their own scores.

According to this, 77% is about 216.

There's also an urban legend that you multiply your score by 1.4. For example, a 148/200 in an offline nbme: 148*1.4 = 207 (3-digit step 1 score).
