Anyone know if a national average has been released this year? (or have an idea of when it would be released?)

took the exam this year
nbme reported an average of "about" (whatever that means) 230 with a SD of 20 on my score report

Does that mean 2.5% of all takers score above 270? Damn. I thought 260+ was like in the 99th percentile

Nope haha. we had a discussion on this a while ago. it's not distributed like that
265 is 99th percentile
250 is 80th percentile

just google usmle percentile and one of the first hits shows the percentile from a year or two ago, and it hasn't change dramamtically
