I just took a 12 question science quizcreated in 2014 to test the general public’s knowledge of some basic scientific concepts.

I got an 8/12. *

*Editor’s note – there are two sets of questions on the quiz so if you get the one with 11 questions all comparisons to me are null and void.

This is kind of discouraging since I thought of myself as above average in the science department, but 8/12 put me right in the middle of the road when compared with the test group of 3,278.

The four I got wrong:

  • Water boiling
  • Sound waves
  • Elements for nuclear energy
  • Polio vaccine

I actually recommend not taking this because you’ll feel dumber afterward, but go ahead, give it a shot.
