Are you as smart as a teenager? Put your knowledge to the test with this ultimate quiz featuring a mash up of National 5 maths, chemistry and French questions.

Pupils are sitting traditional exams this year for the first time since 2019 – with the 2020 and 2021 sittings cancelled due to the pandemic.

But could you tackle the type of questions put to S4 pupils in National 5 maths, chemistry and French papers?

This quiz features questions from all three subjects to give you a taster of what pupils go through each year.

We’ve taken questions from National 5 past papers from 2017, 2018, 2019 published The Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA).

The maths questions included in this quiz are from Application of Maths, from 2018 and 2019, and the Lifeskills Mathematics in 2017.

The questions cover topics such as currency exchange, percentages and calculating monthly instalments – all of which are useful in every day life.

School pupils are not allowed to use a calculator for these questions so put yourself in their shoes and give it a try.

You’ll also need to brush up on your language skills as you’ll be quizzed on topics such as French numbers, and reading letters from a pen pal.

In chemistry, basic knowledge of the periodic table should help you answer the questions.

Some of these questions might be trickier than you think.

Could you be an A grade student or should the tests be left to the schoolchildren?

Take our quiz and let us know if you could pass National 5 exams!
