So just started watching a programme on channel 4 where the people took the National Citizenship test... and 90% of them failed.

I just wondered whether the Brits on ATS would fair any better or not.


Welcome to the Life in the United Kingdom Official Practice Citizenship Test.

This practice test is presented in a format that closely resembles the Official Test. Whilst the questions that we have selected are not the actual test questions, you can use them to find out whether you are ready to take the actual test.


So give it a go and let me know how you do guys.

Come on tell me the truth. That is the score for the second time you took the test after failing first time round and checking the answers. I've got 30% and failed but I only did the test once and it took me about 6 minutes.

Confess lol

Na man.... Just took it once and then looked at my answers.


I guessed on several as I said.

I knew about 13/14 questions and completely guessed the others.

The date of Divorce was a guess, Parliamentary constituencies was a guess...number of people under 19 was a guess, days that schools are open was a guess.

Many I knew... a few I guessed and a few I got wrong.

Many are simple... a few stick in the mind because I've experienced them... others have no relevance therefore I got them wrong.

So should I just pack my bags and leave now or...?

Edit: On a serious note this is such a silly test it's almost funny. I'd hazard a guess and say very few Brits would be able to pass that, even fewer being able to pass it remotely well.

12 out of 24. I'm a little supprised, I didn't think I'd do that well. I guessed half of them.

I am from the UK, so maybe i should have done better. Do I care? Nopesies.
