Error on TEAS score?

So today I took the TEAS and got an overall score of 77.3 (Unfortunately the school I really want to apply to requires a 78, so that is a bummer).

I was looking over my scores and my Science section just isn't adding up to me. My overall score is a 55.3, which obviously isn't great, but when I look at the drop down and it tells me my score per section I got:

Human A + P: 62.5% correct

Life + Physical Sciences: 62.5% correct

Scientific Reasoning:71.4% correct

HOW does this equal an overall science score of 55.3%???

I called ATI and they do not discuss scores and told me to call the school, so I did and left a vm, but don't anticipate hearing back anytime today.

I'm hoping someone can give me some clarity on how this is scored so I can understand better. I find it hard to believe that ATI would have a scoring error, but it just doesn't make any sense.

Thank you for any help!!

As I understand it, the section score is your individual adjusted score, which is your score weighted score when compared to others. The individual subscores are the straight questions _ou answered correctly. So while you answered 62.5 to 71.4% of the questions correctly, so do 55.3% of everyone taking the test. It is basically a curve based on historical values over many years of test taking. Hope that makes sense.

Hmm, interesting! I guess that would explain it. Thank you for responding!
