Good score is anywhere above the National mean. A good score is needed for example when you fail one of the previous step components, or if you have something on your CV that makes you look bad.. Then it is advisable to take STEP 3 before the matching process (this came from Dr. Fischer himself.. not me)

As long as you pass your exam dont worry, residency committees dont care at all about your score, most people take the exam while they are in residency anyways.

Feel calm and good luck in the match
