Result
It's okay, not everyone retains stuff from their school days. Especially with biology, which doesn't have much application unless you're in some very specific fields. You got some of the easy ones, and that's all that matters!

Right!
You have some work to do, but you definitely have some knowledge on the subject of biology. A lot of these facts are things that we learn in school, and then never have to apply, so its reasonable to forget some of it. You've retained more than a lot of people do though, so kudos!

Right!
You certainly retained any biology you learned in school, because that was impressive. A lot of this stuff doesn't have application outside of an educational environment, so either you're a biologist, or you have one incredible steel-trap of a mind!
