MBE average score as % of correct answers

Does anyone know what the national average MBE score is, stated as a % of correct answers? I can find all sorts of stats re "score," but nothing that translates that into percentage of correct answers. I'm looking to gauge myself after having taken a diagnostic test before beginning down-and-dirty study prep.

Thanks.

My best guesstimate is 64% correct to achieve the February mean of 136.5 (based on avg national Feb MBE mean from 1973 to today) or 69% correct to achieve the July mean of 142 (based on avg national July MBE mean from 1973 to today)

69% translates to 142? Thats pretty surprising. I definitely did not feel like I got 69% right walking out of last July's mbe
