Info low scores in step 1 for majority recent takers

some of my friends who have recently appeared in step 1 are facing few situations with new question pool like the questions appearing on step 1 were different from uworld and nbme for practice they were extremely long, longer then what uworld and nbme offers and with vague scenarios anyhow they managed with it but the scores which have quiet become norms previously like 240s is starting to decrease and the ones who are very good students could have easily managed in 240s-250s are now getting in 220s-230s range. so now the average what once 240 was because "majority" or recent takers are getting low from what their predicted scores were. so are there people who recently appeared and got 220-230s range and can this score could get you in IM residency??
