Could YOU pass the UK citizenship test?

The UK citizenship test is set to be rewritten after complaints, it’s so difficult even Brits would struggle to pass it.

Applicants must read the Life in the UK handbook and then pay £50 to take the test before they can obtain British citizenship or residency in that country. The pass rate is currently 75 percent.

Last year a Lords committee said the test should be urgently reviewed as some of its content was inaccurate, trivial and misleading.

“The UK today is about more than clichés like roast beef and pantomimes,” said committee chair Sally Hamwee of the Lib Dem.

“The content of the history chapter is so insensitive as to be offensive. It urgently needs to be replaced.”

According to The Mirror, Home Secretary Simon Murray promises a review of the test by June.

The House of Lords Justice and Home Affairs Committee report released in June said: “The content of the current edition of the Life in the UK handbook appears as a random selection of obscure facts and subjective claims that most people would not be aware of. trivializing the process.

“The content of the history chapter is so insensitive as to be offensive. It urgently needs to be replaced.”

A Home Office spokesman said: “The Life in the UK test is important for anyone wishing to settle permanently in the UK to ensure they understand the democratic principles that underpin British society, as well as aspects of our culture and traditions.

“We plan to finalize the process for revising the Life in the UK handbook in the first half of this year.”
