What is the average scale bump on MBE?

For people who have taken a bar where they show the raw and the scaled MBE score, what is the usual bump?

Depending on numerous factors like the average score (the lower the average, the lower the scale), I've seen it varying from +15 to +30. This is around passing scores though because if you get a very low score, the bump could even be +40.

FYI, the July scale bump tends to be more generous because of a higher scoring pool of applicant. However, for the same reason, the written part's bump can be harsher because better applicants means that more issues may have been spotted.
