UK Life Test: Can You Pass the UK Citizenship Test? Take the quiz

Being born in Britain can give you confidence that you have a good understanding of what it means to be British.

However, you may find the UK citizenship test to be slightly more difficult than you originally imagined.

The 24-question set, also known as the ‘Life in the UK’ test, will cost £50 and is compiled from 3,000 facts about Britain.

The test must be completed in 45 minutes and candidates must answer 75% of the questions correctly to pass.

This means that a score of 18/24 is required to pass the test.

Anyone born overseas who wants to live in the UK permanently or want to become a British citizen must take an exam as part of their application.

Foreign nationals will have to answer a series of multiple questions testing them on their knowledge of British laws, history and traditions.

In addition to being able to answer these difficult questions, you must also have spent some time in the country, passed an English test, and no criminal convictions.
