Question about the 3 digit score!

I am aware that in total we have around 352 questions in 2 ck exam. So when someone says that i got 260 or 280 that means that they got that many questions right out 352?? is that the deal?

If i am wrong please guide me with the scoring. And tell me which is the MAGIC number to aim for? (eg: >230 or something like that)

i am not bothered about the 2 digits coz they are no more.
