When you're a few decades out of school, it’s easy to forget even the basics of the U.S. education curriculum. What’s the quadratic formula, again? What’s the Fifth Amendment all about? Only two people have ever won Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader’s $1 million 5th Grade curriculum question, after all.

Eighth grade science curriculum is, needless to say, even harder. The experts at STAT recently put together a quiz that can dash all your hopes of helping your 8th grader with science homework, testing your knowledge of middle school biology in 10 simple (ish) questions.

Unless you’ve taken a refresher on basic cell biology recently, you may not do so well. For instance, I got seven out of 10 answers correct, putting me on the edge of having all of my science writing assignments yanked away from me. Enjoy having your self-esteem dashed!

Take the quiz over at STAT.
