I took the PCAT today. Here are my scores.

These two were great.
Biological Processes - (99%)
Chemical Processes - (99%)

These two were not so great.
Critical Reading - (52%)
Quantitative Reasoning - (47%)

Composite: (97%)

Thank the lord I did good on the first two sections to boost my composite. I've seen multiple posts with people who received much higher critical reading and quantitative reasoning percentiles, however, I've also seen that many schools only care about the composite (which is why I'm not planning on taking the PCAT again). How will these lower scoring sections affect my competitiveness when it comes to applying to Pharmacy schools this application cycle?

Here's what I have going on other than the PCAT:
Will be graduating this year with a bachelors in Chemistry, and am currently in the process of becoming a pharmacy technician. GPA is 3.4.

Thanks for your responses in advance.

Most schools only look at your composite. It is great you scored so high in biology and chemistry, so I think you will be fine. The first thing they will notice is the composite anyways and probably will not pay too much attention to the lower scores. I scored lower in verbal and CR last time which brought my composite down. Good luck
