Re: Are you a true Brit? UK Citizenship Test

15/20 As a lot of those were guesses, it looks like my luck is in :-)

No idea what most of the questions have to do with being a good British citizen though....

"Could do better" "Has not shown any improvement this term"

Strangely there were no questions on employment, trading standards, residence requirements, marriage laws.

Microsoft have very weird people in their education department: seen it in their technical exams. They ask the most obscure questions, but the meat of the subject is not tested.

Re: Are you a true Brit? UK Citizenship Test

9/20... Does that mean I won't be allowed back?
Do you think I can apply to the HMRC for a refund of the taxes I paid for 20 plus years

I feel slightly better that most Brits faired the same as I.
Liverbird I guess we can both seek asylum in Switzerland

I think the idea behind whoever was behind that article is just to show how difficult the test can be. So they went and selected some of the toughest questions, however the actual test itself is not that difficult and you are supposed to read up from the "Life in the UK" book which contains all the answers. So the test can only prove that you can read and have an average memory. Of course if you take the test without reading the book you won't get many questions right...
Either way, its not a very valid test

It's just a collection of the most difficult questions from the test. My Wife got full marks when she did her official one

Re: Are you a true Brit? UK Citizenship Test

5 out of twenty and im getting married to a Brit

The questions are all useless anw. There are no questions about the joys of queuing or the proper way to make tea. Now thats how you determine a Brit!
