    Although the answer to one of the questions should be "hokum".
    I'll leave the reader to figure out which one.

    I graduated with a Bachelors, so anyone who says you shouldn't attend university because of a non-perfect score has a very narrow-minded vision. Additional note: I took science as my favorite course in high school and I occupied myself with science a bit outside of school, but at university I didn't further touch on classical science (except for computer science).

    Reach for the stars!

    Reading the thread it seems a few people got tripped by that. I actually had to think most carefully about the tides question in case I was falling for some kind of watery trap.

    The questions weren't even remotely hard.

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

    What, 9000?! (Ok, I'm done with this reference for now because I don't want to violate forum rules on being off-topic. Good day!)

    More than one IMO. One question invites you to infer causation from correlation, for example.

    10/12 Water and Jonas Salk. I had no idea about either to be honest. I also haven't done science for 6 years so I'm calling it a win.

    Had no clue about the magnifying glass and the water one I got wrong and I'm annoyed at my own stupidity. I thought pressure increases at higher altitudes not decreases for some reason while actually knowing the boiling occurs when vapour pressure equals external pressure...
