USMLE Scores NBME predicted 234 should I go and take the exam?

Hi,
I just took my NBME CBSSA.
Scores - 3 digits CBSSA - 550
USMLE - 234.
What would be my percentile?
Is it good for me to go ahead with this score on 7th of July.
Scared since I could not clear my CS too. My CK score is 99th percentile. Want a good step1 score to apply.
Help me please.

Thanks for the suggestion. Just one more doubt is a two digit score important or the percentile more specific and important for interviews?

There's two types of scores. The three digit and the two digit scores. The two digit scores are sometimes (though mistakenly) as percentile scores.

For your interviews, you two digit score what matters as long as it is below 99. Only when you get a 99 two digit score then your three digit score may (though seldomly) play role in their selection decision.

This is because any two digit score usually has a small range of corresponding three digit scores, only the 99 has a wide range of three digit scores ranging from 236 up to 280, Read more about this

The reason why I mentioned above that it should not be called a percentile is that because it's not a percentile, Read more about this
