Could you pass the UK test?

People who wish to obtain British citizenship have to pass a "Life in the UK" test. Could you pass? Here's a site that offers free practice tests.

There is additional background information on the official Home Office "Life in the UK" test site.

Oops, I only scored 76% - maybe I should have done some revising first.

Just checked, and the notes say "You must answer 18 out of 24 questions correctly (75%) in order to pass the test". Huzzah, I'm still British. Just.

Other practice sites are available, as well as the official revision book: "Life in the United Kingdom: A Journey to Citizenship" (current versions available from TSO, and elsewhere). Check out a copy from the College libraries. Looks like I'll have to read a copy to brush up on the missing 24% of my Britishness.

i think the best product i have found which helped me in passing the life in the uk test is a software which comes in a CD and prepares you chapter by chapter. it even has got the whole citizenship book in it as a guidance and also dictionary for difficult words. highly recommended if you want to pass the test. the cd is only available online on
