Mean means as they give y on score report it was 228 for step1 so hogher for step2.
Means we should better get at least 10 points higher on step2 then step1.
Also means that people get higher scores on atep2
What about competitiveness i highly doubt that normal people can be compette with any notmal human score with guys who have 260-270s
Ao i dont really get what people mean with compwtitive score
Higher better period

@tamta...sorry. let me rephrase.
back in the days, the 2-digit (99%) used to tell you how well you have done. it was an easier approach. The "99%" had a cut-off. so everybody aimed to beat that cut-off.

Now with the change of the way the scores are reported and with the raise of the passing score, i am completely lost.
So what is most likely to be representative of the old "99%" ?
