Scored 46% but I'm an avid tea drinker, and that's all that matters to be british!

I failed, but then again I am from Louisiana.

Learned a bit about Britain by taking the test though.
Thanks for the link

Well I got the proverbial 42% EPIC FAIL have been in Canada 6 yrs and got 90% on the Canadian practice test..
On the Uk test I agree..... I thought New Deal didn`t exist anymore...Compared with the Canadian test this is a joke......we have the option of 100 questions circled round and the Canadian history and politics is harder...and yet I found this test harder.....I would have thought regarding religion it would be anglican and methodist...because methodist accepts most anglican religion...I could go on and on...i am embarrassed but there should certainly be more than 24 questions...anyways my bad!...I guess I am not English but CANLISH lol x

Google works miracles eh?
I took the test in under 4 minutes...so I'm curious as to why it took you almost 10.


Anyway,I got 10 out of 24.But I'm an American so that's okay !

Dear All

I have been out of the country for about 14 years; really I am surprised I got so many right. Some really dumb questions there.

You have failed the practice citizenship test.

Questions answered correctly: 14 out of 24 (58%)

Time taken: 09 minutes 27 seconds

I failed at 64% but I am not British and do not live in the U.K., have only visited once for about four weeks and that was way back in 1991.

eta. took just under 5 minutes

Awww man.

50%. FAIL.

I did live overseas for ten years....Obviously that had a huge impact on my ability to answer questions about my country

I got 54%...

Nice to see they have the priorities right though...

You aren't a modern British citizen unless you know how to sponge lots of benefits!

Really if your an 'immigrant' and on benefits for more than 6 months you should be getting taught how to take yourself back from wherever you came, NOT how to claim more, the country is full of enough scroungers as it is.

Have to be honest, i am now feeling rather smug!




You have passed the practice citizenship test. Questions answered correctly: 21 out of 24 (88%) Time taken: 02 minutes 55 seconds Please select 'Test summary' for a full summary of your test and for advice on how to use the Official Handbook and Study Guide to prepare for the actual test. Please note: At the end of the actual test, your answers will not be displayed on screen. At the end of the test session the test supervisor will tell you whether you have passed or not.


Same as you though, guessed a couple but just seemed to know most (which i admit is a little bit worrying!). So when do i get my official Citizen approved knobkerrie for clearing all you illegals out of the way?

Well done for offending the Scots there, saying they aren't British.

Don't worry. that's not offensive. Honestly, it's nice to be considered a country rather than a region that sits above England



I scored a measly 9. Does that mean i can get deported? Somewhere with more sun and less rain would be fab

I got 9 out of 24 on the UK test.

And...

50% right on the US test.

Passed neither, but was more knowledgable on the US test than the UK one


If i had read the study guide i would of likely got better marks on the UK test.

Some strange questions in there though. God knows what the questions are like in the full test. Is there a link to the full one somewhere?

if you think Britain has any identity of its own left, im afraid you are living in the past

I failed, 14 correct from 24, 58% good. But then again, I am not british


If this test is released to determine if a person is a foreign spy or not, the one taking the test is in deep trouble.... no matter british or not.

What a stupid test...

46% is worthy of a facepalm at myself in the mirror methinks.
Good Lord.

I failed with a crappy 20% however somthing i noted was the number of questions about random percentages or very old laws.

I think that test is a very poor represenation of what makes a good/valid citezen

Honestly how the heck am i meant to know the percentage of muslims in the UK when each percent is one from the last? stupid.
