Does anyone have any idea how the scores will be calculated? What will be considered a good score after the reduction in the number of questions from 308 to 280?

"Scores on new and old exam forms will be comparable; the decrease in the number of items per form will be accounted for in scoring the examination results."

score is based on the percentile not number of questions

So does that mean each question would have more value, but the high score will continue to remain around the same?
