Can You Pass This Basic Science Test?
Oh well, never mind. There's more to life than science. Maybe you could become a BuzzFeed writer or something?
Not bad! You've got some science knowledge. Not enough to beat a Scottish kid, of course. But some.
Congratulations! You're officially as smart as a Scottish kid...when it comes to science, anyway. Go to the top of the class.
