Looking at your results on this mock-exam, you may have missed a few more than you got right, but not many! Biology is an expansive, intricate branch of the sciences that many dedicate their lives to mastering. The great thing about an education, however, is that it's never-ending! It looks like you just need to study a few terms or brush up on your life sciences and you'd be able to pass a college level Bio class no problem.

You Passed! Nicely Done!

You Passed! Nicely Done!

Did you find this mock-exam to be a tad on the difficult side, or was it not too bad? Either way, you may not have absolutely aced it - but you certainly passed with a solid grade! Looking at your results, you may have missed a few of the tougher questions (Biology is an EXPANSIVE sicence) but your foundation of knowledge when it comes to the natural world is solid. Either way, you've got a leg up on most when it comes to the science of life, and that's not something to take for granted! Well done!

You Are A Master of Life! A True Bio-Buff!

You Are A Master of Life! A True Bio-Buff!

Color our cells impressed! You either aced this mock-exam or got a lot more right than you did wrong, either way - nice job! Your knowledge of biology extends beyond "hey - what dog breed is that?" genetics, and into a finer understanding of "why yes, mitosis IS a part of the cell cycle process!" The intricacies of life's working mechanisms seem to fascinate you - and why wouldn't they? Your Biology knowledge gives you an excellent foundation when discussing and/or researching anything from hereditary genetics to the taxonomy of life on this planet! Go you!
