Around what level of a rider am I?

I know you probably get this question a lot and you cannot tell properly without seeing me ride but I just want others opinions that won't be sugarcoated so here goes
I can:
W/t/c confidently
Collected and extended trot
Posting trot correct diagonal
20meter circles w/t/c
Correct lead at canter
Up to 3foot jump at trot
2foot jump at canter
Good 2point
Working on half seat
Sitting trot
Sitting trot no stirrups (needs work)
Canter no stirrups (needs work)
Can stay on spooked, crow hoping, bucking horse ( mild)

I think i am advanced beginner maybe but I just want outsiders opinions Oh and I've only been riding for two years if thats important.

Lots of people can do that. It depends on the horse.

A video or picture would help.

In my opinion how good a rider is really depends on their hands, legs, and position in general.

I don't have pictures or videos but I keep my hands up, I need to keep my legs further back and when I went on a trail ride while on vacation I was asked if I done dressage because of my position if that helps! And I ride all different horses but I am especially used to lazy horses and keeping them going but I do sometimes ride speedy horses.

It sounds like you have a basic foundation under you. How much experience do you have working with other horses? Are you able to do everything you listed on more than just a lesson horse? Again, its hard to say until we actually see some pictures or video.

This is what happens when you have democrats in office

I usually ride lesson horses but they aren't the easy going can do anything ones the one I usually ride is still learning to jump and canter around turns. I also ride one who you cannot use your hands on barely at all. And I can do all the things I listed on every horse I've ridden but some things I am still working on.
