USMLE Scores Got my Step 1 score - 246/86 - high or low?

I am an IMG an I got my Step 1 score 2 Wednesdays ago; it's 246/86.
From what I have read usually 246 goes with 99

So, I was wondering why I recieved so low two digit score and what are the conclusions for my score overall?

Thanx,
Dr. Andrews

Default Don't worry

Scores are reported to the PDs as the three-digit score. Also, all programs based their criteria on the the 3 digit score.
Just remember, the US average is 220-225, so you're in good shape. Also, take a look at the Nrmp survey of PDs... You'll fine that (depending on your specialty) your score is very favorable... Just go to the nrmp website, and download it.

Best of luck
