Quiz: Could You Pass The UK Citizenship Test?

Posted by Happy Homemaker UK


After five years of living in England, I could apply to become a UK citizen

You, too, can try a few 'Life In The UK Citizenship Test' questions here

I found it fascinating (and failed miserably)

At least I got the driving question right!




How did you fair?

Wow I only got half correct - looks like it's a life in the colonies for me!

Happy day!

Well I took it for real a few months back and passed. It's really not that hard, you just have to buy the study guide and read and memorize all the boring facts.

What made me laugh is that the test is a few years old and some of the facts on it are no longer true. But for the purposes of the test you have to memorize the old "out of date" information in order to get the questions right. That part made me laugh the hardest.

In answer to the question in your title: NO! (being a bona fide half Scottish half English, married to an Englishman, through and through Brit!)

What a hoot! I got 14 out of 24. Looks like I'm joining Felicity ☺. J x

I'm not sure that I should admit to this....but I failed! Some of the questions I had to guess and obviously got them wrong.
Fun trying though.

A quango? I am too terrified to click the citizenship test link, since I didn't even make it past the first question! Going to google this word right now...

That felt a little TOO close to taking my high school chemestry final! Blah- total fail! Haha- but I didn't have headphones on listening to The Cure this time around. ;)

My husband took this test last year. He had to really study for it! None of his UK born friends passed the mock tests, goes to show!

Privet and Holly said...

I think I would fail, miserably!
I didn't even have an INKLING
of what was right....But, as always,
I love the lingo!

Are you sure they want to have new citizens? :-)

Oh my goodness, I just did the test and scored 10 out of 24 and failed the test miserably. I've lived in Britain all my life, just goes to show what a farce it is!

According to British Nationality Act, Candidates who apply for British Citizenship should submit a vital evidence of Knowledge of Life in UK.I think your guides are very helpful.

Not sure knowing all that stuff is essential to be a British citizen but it's probably better than the one they tried to introduce a few years ago which consisted of a lot of questions on how do you claim benefits and complain about the police!!

Congratulations! And so interesting :)

Ooh, love The Cure, The Smiths, and Sinead - I was right there with you in high school :)

Ha! Glad he passed :)

That makes me feel so much better! I know Belgium has a similar test too

Yikes!

Emily said...

Well, that was fun! and I failed 13 out of 24.

I think it is terrible that some of the information in this test is apparently already out of date!

I don't think I would pass a US one either.

Our youngest is in England for 3 weeks visiting her sister. I can only image all the fun they are having.
