Oooops. I failed.
That said, if the actual test has as much time allowed and they have google on the computer....

My brother-in-law has just taken this test (he passed!) and has now qualified for citizenship.

11/24. Good job I'm already here. What a load of auld hogwash that test is.

There are 2 questions that dont allow you to answer correctly.

Take a look at my screen shot of a wrong answer and see is you can find 'd' option?

As a failure, there are two ways of looking at it:

1. It doesn`t matter I have a UK passport

2. Oh damn. Where am I to find a good forger!!!!!

I got 67% - I'm not sure how knowing what year a woman could divorce her husband is relevant to being a British Citizen...

I only got 50%, will I have to be exiled onto a remote Hebridean island to be bitten by midges for evermore...?

Blackhat - haha strange.. someone is conspiring against you :P

Quickbeam - So now we all get a plane ticket to go somwhere somewhere nice and exotic right?

Why is it even important to know the answers to those questions?

Name of C of E - I'm not religious so I don't care.
How many constitutions - I only can vote in one anyway, so..
Divorcing husbands - I'm not female..

16 out of 24. There are several questions that are strange. How many days does a school have to stay open, Ulster Scots and how many constituencies (which doesn't allow the answer too many).

What relevance does the EU questions have to UK citizenship?

  spuds 14:12 02 Aug 2009

I failed, but there was a few trick questions :O((

Do we now have to resign our citizenship and return any UK passports, and transfer all belongings to an illegal immigrant?.
