Hello everyone! So I took the 6/19 12:15pm test and just received my score back (Total 515, C/P 126, CARS 127, B/B 130, P/S 132 (lol how did i even do that)). Everyone who took this test knows about how brutal the C/P section was hence my relatively low score :( I am super happy with the overall score, but then I realized that there is quite a spread with my scores, with the delta between the highest and lowest scores being 6 points... Am I overthinking this and be wholeheartedly content with this score or should this be some cause for concern?

You're overthinking it. Some schools do have subsection cutoffs that they use to screen applicants out, but I have never seen this be greater than a 125.
