Default target score for step 3

In step 1 & CK forums, ppl have put up their great scores and experiences
( >250-260).
In step 3 forum, I have hardly come across ppl with such high scores
( >250)

So my question is that is it really that hard to get great scores on step 3 or is it that most ppl who give step 3 after IVs just want to pass.. i.e. scores don't matter ??

I am giving step 3 by Sept i.e. before getting interviews... so I need a good step 3 score. Just passing is not enough for me.

so what should be my target ?
Has anyone scored equally well in their step 3 as they did in their step 1 & CK ?

I would really really appreciate your help.
259/256/ CS pass 1st attempt/ 3 months Electives/ 2012 YOG
