11/13, but several somewhat lucky guesses.

Nice work! Some of the numbers can be tricky.

I don't think I agree with #2 - the first papers were based on data obtained at 900 GeV.

I had no clue on any quetion and guessed every single one, so that says something about multiple choice tests.

I got most material from the CERN website or the LHC wiki entry.

I decided not to take the test when I saw the first question and I realized it was a good decision when I continued reading other questions!

That is fully loaded, your brain should contain a large volume of LHC knowledge.

Not particularly -- it's just I seem to have a pretty good recall of what I've read about the LHC recently.

6/13, mostly guessing. I divided 300,000 by 27 to get 11,000 times a second (close to light speed) and of course the picture looks like a "compact" muon solenoid...

Construction started in 1998? But LEP was still down there :/

You are right - the tunnel was started much earlier. That's another bad question. However, it is possible to start building magnets before the LEP tunnel was emptied.

6, (At least I was mostly right about some technical aspects of the various experiments and what they are.)

Fortunately, I read a lot of your posts or it would have been 3 out of 13!
