  To hpoefula:
Any circumstantial evidence?
Also we don't need negative messages on this board.

  what evidence you need. Mean is 217 and standard deviation is 23 as stated in the report they send you. This is not a negative message. Its a fact.

  i gt 246
n yes my score report says mean 217
n sd 23
but its nt 90 percentile n if it is
the 2 digit score doesnt corresponds to percentile
my 2 digit score says 99
n ihve seen my friends

  Yes 246=99 on the 2 digit score. and 246 is 90percentile of all US and Canadian students on the 3 digit score cause 2 digit score is not the percentile. Congratulations, hope you have a good score on step 2 also

  anything above 243 or 245 is 99 on the 2 digit score. However 2 digit score is not the percentile.
