Not a Biologist Quite Yet...
You are certainly no biologist. That said, you shouldn’t worry. If anything, this result will just let you better appreciate the work medical professionals and biologists do for us. We are sure you’ve learned a lot from this experience too. Just try the quiz again and you’ll see what we mean! Better luck next time!
 
You did well for youself!
You certainly know some important facts about biology, and will have little problem working out what hurts when you are in pain. This vital skill will help you let your doctors help you. There is still a bit of learning for you to do yet though. We hope we’ve inspired you to do some more research on biology!
 
You Aced This Biology Test!
That was a brilliant test performance. You should be proud of your biological knowledge. If it comes to it, you’ll have no problem explaining to a nurse or doctor just where it hurts. If only the rest of us mortals knew as much as you... Congratulations!
