At what point would a PAT score be low enough to recommend retake?

I've got my test in 4 days and so far on Kaplans Tests my PAT has been 14, 13, 14, 16.
Most recently I did also take a Bootcamp PAT section on its own and got a 17.

If I took the test when I have it scheduled and got like a 16-17 would that mean I would have to retake. At this point would you guys say reschedule?

Also does anyone have a definitive answer on whether you can reschedule the day before the test (Tues so can I do that Mon after using the wkd to see if I can improve PAT)?

Weak with: TFE, Keyholes, Patternfolding

Any and all advice is welcome

I'd say below a 17. Some schools could care less about the section in general but still have cutoffs (majority I'd say is around 17). Do some research/contact individual schools and see what they say when you apply. Also, bootcamp PAT is harder than the real thing in my opinion, don't sweat it. Just keep practicing. Only you will know when you are ready.
