I think its only for 6.

I'd do either 6 or 4. It doesn't matter as they aren't very predictive

i think it applies to all forms ,there is a slight change in the score correlation
500 now equals 237 (mean ) with a standard deviation of 100
so if you got 600 that will translate into a step 2 score of 258 ( standard deviation of step 2 ck is 21 )
but over all it's a slight change
