I got 13. Two wrong I should have known, and a few of the ones I got right were guesses.

Trouble is I rushed it just to see how the scoring system worked and didn't try too hard, although I didn't know many of the answers. I'm sure I could have done better if i'd taken more time.

I wasn't expecting to see all the answers highlighted, which effectively prevented another try. Well it wouldn't have if I'd thought about it and not read through them like an idiot, but my brain has been dulled by marking after all.

7 / 20 and I'm kicking myself about the answer to question 9. Well I've been reminded what Deuterostomia consists of at least.

15/20. It would have been 16 but I changed my mind at the last moment on one question, from the right answer to a wrong one. D'oh!

14/20. I suck on questions involving random collections of letters. Smile

12/20. Some were guesses and some were stuff I feel I should know, or should not have forgotten.

I think most of my ignorance on this one was on the astronomy side.

I've not been keeping up with what systems have neutron stars or planets. Partly this is because of the way they name stuff. What happened to the good old days when planets had actual names instead of strings of incomprehensible alphanumeric characters?

I actually knew the one about how many electrons are in the inner shell. Of course if the quiz had asked precisely why it should be that number I'd have run screaming from the room.

12/20. A few of those were educated guesses based on what I knew about the things in question.

After a few "what? I don't remember that question" reactions to comments, I did the quiz again and got a different set of questions. Looks like it picks at random from a set of >20, so scores probably aren't directly comparable.

I got 18 on my second attempt. Five questions I'd had before (all ones I got right last time though!), the rest were new.

I got 12/20, surprising for me is how much I had forgotten...

9/20 - but in all honesty, if this was not multiple choice - how many would you really get Very Happy

Some of them I had absolutely zero knowledge of whatsoever, and some I knew the answer to without the options. A lot more of the former than latter.

Multiple choice is multiple fraud Wink With no options I'd probably have gotten 3 or 4 (ignoring those which asked for "example of..." )

p.s. You can do it twice, the questions also differ. The second loading provided easier questions as well, luck of the draw I guess Very Happy
