Default Citizenship test - Would you be allowed entry in to the UK?

Make Bradford British - Features - Channel 4 Citizenship Test - Channel 4

How well did you do. Got 100% here, but I did do some guessing in certain places, and some educated guesses as well

I only got 79% and most of them were guesses, cant see any immigrants passing that test.
What have the Huguenots french protestants or calvinists got to do with a british citizenship test ??? probably only scottish people would know that one.

Im not THAT lucky. Besides, I read the news and I like history. I clicked false for the French protestants thing simply because I've never heard of it. I had no idea that was the right answer until the end

Well, if you look at the stats most people (UK and abroad) fail the test, so you have a point there. But congrats I suppose. You are allowed in to the UK

Ithink it's a rediculous test. I had to guess most of them, and have lived here all my life. I have been rejected entry lol.

You're only saying that because you've been rejected but yeah I do agree with you that it is quite a bad test

It'd be quite bad if people did actually have to leave. If they did, that'd be around 2/3 of the country out
