Step 1 score 240 plus equals 99?

Hi,
I understand that 2 digit scores are not relevant and only two digit scores matters. But is it safe to say that a score above 240 is equivalent to a two digit score of 99? I believe passing is 188, what is the average 3 digit score for step 1? Thanks

Don't worry ur brain on 99 or wat ever nobody looks at that any more. Just get a good 3 digit score.
Anything above 230 is competitive.
