Citizenship Test.

I failed with a miserable 46%, deport me now, the west indies will do Grin

It is the most pointless test ever actually, who cares how many parliamentary seats there are, or when by elections happen, or where Ulster Scots is spoken.

This subject was raised on last nights BBC Question Time, i cant remember who said this but someone said the test should be constructed as to actually help integration, as it is the questions bare little relevance in the real world, yet another white elephant...

well nw i feel even more shameful lol weird questions though, obviously drawn up by some mp with his head in the clouds or up his ar...... yeah Smile

The questions should be more like, how much for a bag of fish and chips? or, what happens at Santa Pod? or, why do brits go to the beach even when its wet and windy?

Though i do live in Wisbech, aka wisbekistahn, so allowances musty be made for my failure as a british citizen Grin

Is the test aimed at making sure there is a basic understanding of how the UK works, so that would be citizens at least have a common reference point.

Yeap. I took the test nearly two years ago and passed. I tested my Brits colleagues before that, and they didn't even know the answers! LOL

58% in under 5mins, not bad considering I had to guess a few Smile Like 'prescription charges' free in Scotland. Pity I won't be a UK citizen for much longer though after the referendumGrin

58% in 5 minutes. Of course, if you buy the book you can look everything up in the 45 minutes suggested.....

(oh, and 9/10 on the "real" one)
