    The title says "Americans", not "people" as you said in your title. Big difference.
    Americans are people too. You racist.

    a level bio / uni level healthcare degrees kinda makes you learn it
    I did a level bio and got that wrong.

    I hate the subject so thats probably why, its just a grade for me.

    a levels in general i didnt like (wholeload of reasons combined together). Uni i preferred a lot more and that reflected academically tbh. but different people have different views I guess

    The questions weren't even remotely hard.

    If you want to test the Prince of all Saiyans intellect, come up with harder questions

    11/12. Since its a multiple choice quiz, choosing the answer which made more sense was easy.

    LOL at how whites did better than blacks or hispanics in the quiz, and how men did better than women.

    11/12 - not bad for someone without a science GCSE and hasn't studied the subject for 10 years. :proud:

    It's only ever used as an example for exam questions on how vaccine and immune system works for A-level, so most school would not bother teaching the history behind it (since its a waste of time).

    I'm doing A-levels in all the sciences, though, so that's hardly surprising given the difficulty (or lack thereof) of the quiz.

    At least a mildly enjoyable way to procrastinate instead of doing that Chemistry homework... hmm... I should get back to that... due in tomorrow... Nah, just one more hour online, just one...
