USMLE Scores Is 99 in CK similarly calculated to the 99 in Step 1?

Hi Folks...
I have heard people saying that if we get 229 and above in Step 1, the percentile will be 99.
Is there anything like that for CK as well? Because CK has got 30 questions more than Step 1, right...?
I have seen in one of the threads showing 3 digit and 2 digit score correlation, but I doubt if that applies for Step 1 or CK or both...
Hope someone will clarify this doubt...

Even if there was something like that for CK, dont worry because the two digit score are no longer considered, its the 3 digit score that matters now.

NO MORE 2 Digit Score Scale for USMLE Steps!

Cheers..

The three digit score is not the number of questions you get right.
