This is really interesting
A three digit score of 229 should correlate with 95!

Probably, this reflects the new changes in the minimal passing scores recently implemented.

The passing score of 75 was changed from 185 to 188 on the three digit scale.

Maybe, likewise, they changed the minimum three digit score to get 99!

I don't think this is beneficial for you by any means. In fact, if program directors are going to compare you with any other student who got 99 they'll see that your three digit score is less and they may give more weight to other scores. :(

Finish Kaplan notes and vids, do FA, do UW and you'll get 99 :)

thanks

congrats suman.... wat to be so surprized.... u r lucky dats it!!! i wish i too get a decent score... was ur exam difficult???
thanks dude. yeah infact i felt my exam was difficult in the sense i never faced some(10%) of the questions in the exam. and importantly i didn't managed my gap time efficiently, that resulted me headache during the 6th and 7th blocks. so my kind advice is proper time management is essential for getting good score. any how i wish u best of luck.:)
