    So I'm retaking the pcat in september because I got a sad score in July. (Even though I got a 85 on both chem and bio section but whatever). I scored a little above average on the writing section as well and I still got a 27 on my composite (Its frustrating). Anyway, I wanted to know if pharmacy schools actually average the two test scores? Say 27 and the next score I get is oh I don't know, a 80..then the average would be 53.5. Is that how they look at the pcat score or just take the higher test score and consider that? fyi, I did not study for the math and english, focused more on the science part thats why I got a low score overall.

    From what I have been told, depends on the school, but for some they do the most recent!
