    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 :rudeboy:

    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 :lol: 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

    When you actually take the test for real you get a pamphlet giving you all the answers. 30 minutes of study of the pamphlet and you should get 100% without problem so not sure what the purpose of this test actually is. It certainly doesn't prove 'britishness'

    Generally people who haven't read the pamphlet will be lucky to get above 50% regardless of whether they are resident or not !

    Yep, I agree, pretty pointless test. There must be some better questions they could think up, relating to real life in Britain.

    Yup, like "How long does the average queue take in the post office"
    and "How often are the trains on time"

    i think the test is more to make sure you read and understand english if you cant read and understand the pamphlet then you have no chance on the test , no idea what it has to do with britishness though

    It looks like the best way to get citizenship here is to be an immigrant.:smile:

    But you get citizenship by birth right any way? Also, I went on to the UK border force site, and I put in similar details in the UK border force site and the Australian one (The details being non commonwealth, non EU, "skilled" to my current standard) and it turned out that I'd have a better chance at getting in to Australia than the UK.

    You should try it out some time

    Here's the UK points calculator:

    UK Border Agency | Points-based calculator

    Seemingly the only ways you could get in is if you're a student with a confirmed place or deemed to be of high value, and studied in the UK. Tier 1 (general) is now closed to people outside the EU
