I think 440 is equivalent to 203 according to this chart and FA 2010 chart (page 11).

203 is equivalent to 83 on the 2-digit scale.

Anyway, don't feel down. You still have a month left, and you can easily raise the score in this period of time.

1 month should be plenty of time to raise your score. Also, don't worry too much about the 2 digit score, nobody cares about it. The main thing is your 3 digit score. I think the average 3 digit score for American test takers is about 220, and for competitive specialities such as plastic surgery, the average can be as high as 240- 250. Focus on the 3 digit number when you do your NBME, that's what residency directors look at.
