This can be answered by looking at your stats.

Height, weight, lift numbers in the core lifts (squat, DL, bench, press... also pullups, dips, rows if you prefer as well as Oly lifts)?

If your squat/DL isn't above about 1.8-2x bodyweight, and bench isn't above around 1.5x and press half of that then it's likely you're still a beginner

No need to get fancy... lift numbers basically decide whether you can still do linear progression in most cases
