There isn't an official explanation, but the logical reason is that the exam has become more difficult in a sense that less people are getting high scores. So when someone gets 228, his/her level is comparable to someone who got 236/99 a few years ago. No injustice is in work here, because the 2-digit score reflects the overall comparative performance. So both of those candidates have an equal performance.
