I recently finished my Bachalor's of science in Biology for some context.
I scored 43/52
I have some points that I'd like to make.
Firstly I think this is a very American focused test and questions like "which of these states boarder Virginia" are not science questions and hence should not have been included in a science quiz. you cannot expect international participants to know this.
Question 45) The age of a star can mainly be determined by their - I think that the answer is actually all of them to some extent. The temperature of the star determines the frequency of electromagnetic radiation emitted from the star and hence it's apparent colour. Likewise the size of a star is a function of both the amount of raw materials available to the star and its stage of life cycle which gives some indication of age. ie for two stars with equal materials the size will allow you to differentiate between the age of the stars.

Most of the questions I got wrong were relating to geology which I have recieved absolutely no education on at all all the way until graduating a biology degree. I'm happy to say that every question that I have learned about in school or otherwise I was able to answer correctly.
