I haven't received mine either but in my own case, my school has received it and I know my scores already. So at this point, I don't really care if they mail it or not.

Can you imagine I live in Texas and the test is scored in San Antonio and I haven't received it yet?

Have all of you checked with the schools you've applied to? Maybe they've received the scores already and there's just a problem with your address.

I haven't received mine either (in S. Philly). Temple (about 4 miles to the north) received them however long ago with enough time to consider my app. complete and then mail me and interview invite (delivered last Sat.). Don't understand how there's such a difference in the mail system within a 4 mile distance. So I called Harcourt and confirmed my address was correct and tried to see if they could confirm when it was mailed. The lady told me there were 3 mailing dates (March 23, 26, and 27) and that if I haven't received it by the 12th I can request another copy to be mailed out. Last Sat. was 6 weeks since Jan 20th. What's the problem?

sadly it is. However I am not white, And I never liked english. I never tried or read books etc...

I don't understand the significance here~~~???? I didn't think there was a question on the PCAT (or any graduate entrance test) that asked for racial or ethnic background as a determinant of test score?

Well standardized tests tend to be biased.

But that comment wasn't entirely necessary. The real reason for that score would have been that TexasBlaze never like reading books.

I don't understand how they are biased. The word "standardized" indicates that all are tested at the same level; they serve as equalizers for all to be evaluated on the same level.

Unless there is evidence of a correlation between sex, race, ethnicity, etc and knowledge of a specific subject then how can there be any bias in the test. To do well you have to know your stuff and that's it. Your test score isn't affected by anything else, whether you're male or female, black or white, tall or short, old or young, etc and that's it. Sure, for those who speak English as a second language there is a language barrier, but that's circumstantial and not to be considered as a bias built into the test.

Explain why you think standardized tests are bias.

I really, really didn't want to respond to this comment. But I just could not resist. I'm not going to jump on your case, but what I will say is - I certainly hope that you never, ever answer a question in regards to your mental or physical ability with an answer that begins with "I'm not white so,...". As an African American female, I must say I cringed when I read this reply. I don't know what ethnic group you belong to, nor do I care to know. I just want you to realize that it diminishes your entire ethnic group when you make comments such as this one. Being white or not being white has absolutely no bearing on your performance on the PCAT or any other test for that matter. And it certainly has no bearing on your ability to read and comprehend English if it is indeed your first language. Increasing your score has to begin with taking responsibilty for your performance or lack thereof. BTW I made an 89 on the verbal section of the Oct PCAT and a 90 on the Jan PCAT. I wish you the best of luck in your career goals!:) Just know that barriers are often rooted in our own feelings of inadequacy.

Be blessed

I would have gotten 99%'s in Math and Chemistry but, I'm not asian. :mad: Just kidding. I'm pretty wow'ed by that statement too. My first thought when I screw up on math and chemistry was 'why didn't I study more for those sections?'

this thread has gotten considerably off topic.

Agreed! TexasBlaze finally got his/her scores... what about the rest of you that were waiting? Pojorific? It does seem odd that there is such a big gap in the time frame this year (everyone I knew who took it last year got results within a day or two of one another). Did ya'll take the newly formatted test or was is the "old" version? That's the only thing I can think of that might be different b/n last year and now...

Hi guys, this is crazy i still did not receive my pcat score yet. I called harcort and they said i can wait till March 12th...if i did not see my score on that date then i can call and request for an expediated score. This is unbelievable, how in the world i still dont recive my score. Harcort Assestment Institution has a very bad reputation of antagonising test takers. But is all good guys..i know i will eventually get it.
PEACE.

Harcourt says that it takes six weeks for you to get your scores, but pharmacy schools get your scores a few days earlier.

If the score is late and you don't have another PCAT score, then one would be screwed.
