    I got my PCAT Scores - this is the first time I took the exam. I could not understand on why is the percentile rank score so low. Can someone explain me on how are the scores calculated. Here is what I got:-

    375 15%
    409 66%
    389 33%
    396 47%
    400 54%
    Composite 394 39%
    I think my composite percentile should be higher than what it reflects on the transcript. Please help
    If someone can help me - the calculation of the scores for PCAT. I am really confused at this point; please help me.

    i don't think the composite score is an average of the 5 sections. maybe certain sections were weighed more. anyhow, your composite score isn't that much lower than a straight average of your sections.

    Refer to the "How is it scored" thread at the bottom part of this forum.
    Bananaface explains it well...
