PCAT scores are matched by the PCAT CID to each PharmCAS application and forwarded to our school. PharmCAS will ONLY use the PCAT CID to match scores. The PCAT CID is supplied by Pearson and is different than your PharmCAS ID. If you do not report your PCAT CID, PharmCAS cannot send your PCAT scores to Presbyterian College. If you have any further questions about the matching of your scores, please contact PharmCAS at
