For instance say I have:

CARS of 123 - (37 percentile) ~ 7 old scale.
P/S of 126 - (67 percentile)
507 - 76 percentile (old scale 73-percentile is a 29 and 79-percentile is 30)

I have been painstakingly preparing myself for this section of the MCAT to no avail. I have been doing 2 practice passages daily for about a month and a half and my score has not improved. I may be dyslexic or something because Im unable to recognize the theme/tone/rhetoric of what the author is...
I got a 514 - 130/125/131/128 and was wondering if I should retake since my CARS is so low. Is it worth risking this to improve CARS if it's possible my score could be lower than 514 overall the second time? I've heard CARS is very important

So I just got my Mcat score back for the 8/5 exam and i got a very unbalanced score.
I got an overall 514 which is 91st percentile but my score breakdown was:
Chem/Phys: 131 (99th percentile)
CARS: 122 (22nd percentile)
Bio/Biochem: 130 (97th percentile)
Psych/Soc: 131 (98th percentile)
