OK.

The questions are different each time, I just realised... someone did it and had different questions to me.

My Yankeeness was proven in spades...epic failure on the Brit test.


You have failed the practice citizenship test.

Questions answered correctly: 8 out of 24 (33%)

Time taken: 06 minutes 38 seconds




Darnitall

EDIT:

However; I did reasonably well on the U.S. test

I actually got all 10 of those correct...but stingy phrasing caused me to get 2 of them wrong. They asked "What ocean was on the west coast of the U.S?"

I typed "Pacific Ocean"

Acceptable answers were "Pacific", "THE Pacific" & "THE Pacific Ocean"...wtf, so I got that wrong

Also the question "Who Lived in America before the Europeans arrived?"

My answer: "Native Americans, Indians"

Accepted answers: "Native Americans", "American Indians", "Indians", "Native Indians"

Since I used 2 of the correct answers I got no credit...

So I'm calling total B.S. on that and saying I got 100% instead of the 80% they want to give me.


edit on 1-3-2012 by musicjunkie because: cuz I took the U.S. test, too

OK, got one for you. Which of the following had an American influence?

1- Benny Hill
2- Monty Python
3- Abfab

No Google dude.


I will guess none of the above
Is it a trick question?

I took the American Citizenship test and got 100%....Not bad considering the last time I took American government or History was in the 8th grade in 1974. I thought the test would have questions that were more relevant to how things currently work, as opposed to what political party our president belongs to, or name Indian tribes native to America.

Do I get a gold star now, or a pat on the head for being a good little First Generation American?

I'm not from the UK. I got 13/24 correct. I went through it in less than five minutes.

I missed these:

3) I have no idea how many parliamentary constituencies there are.
6) I really should have known the Ulster Scots thing. I had a duh moment on that one.
7) I had a vague idea and guessed 1875 instead of 1857.
9) I guessed that people 18 and under should get free prescription medicine and figured pregnant women could fend for themselves.
11) I guessed wrong. You all have more kids than I thought you did.
12) I guessed wrong again. You have fewer Muslims than I thought you did.
15) I was way off base.
18) If I were in charge of your schools, I'd make a lot of kids happy with my guess of 170 days of school.
20) Hansard?
21) Only 60?
22) Missed that one.

The American one is much easier in my opinion. Being on here (ATS) has definitely given more more of an understanding of the American system and politics. I only just passed the American one and failed the UK one.

Welcome to ATS!

When I replied I hadn't noticed that you are a new member, my apologies.

The saying "Pics or it didn't happen" is a bit of an overused saying around here.

Didn't mean to question your actual score, just a friendly jibe.

I should read more carefully before hitting the reply button.!

Anyhow, if I can help you with anything here question- wise please feel free to send me a private message and I will do what I can to assist.

Cheers,.

I also failed it. 9/24 .
I tried the yank one and also failed that. 30%.
I thought the American questions were a better set of questions and more related to their way of life.

I agree, the American one was dumbed-down like it was for junior high kids. That doesn't say much for how our government views immigrants, does it? Or perhaps. they are making it a lot easier to become a citizen.

If you are referring to an American participating, I would say Monty Python. If you were referring to influencing ideas, I would say AbFab.

And you would be right.

Errrr, I don't see that:



That would send a lot of Americans into spasms. The US is the US and the UK is the UK. Ain't it grand that you've got these translators north of the border that can make sense of, "Two peoples separated by a common language"?
