From November 2005, all people applying for British Citizenship have to go through 'Life in the United Kingdom' test to demonstrate ability to communicate in English and to prove their basic knowledge of history, traditions and customs of UK.

The test consists of 24 questions and you are required to answer atleast 18 correctly to pass the test. The time allocated is 45 minutes but all the people i know took less than 5 minutes to answer the questions.

On this site we have collected more than 100 questions and answers that will help you prepare for the test. Generally it is enough to revise questions and answers from this site to pass the test but we will advise you to buy ‘Life in the United Kingdom: A Journey to Citizenship’ book.

Please note that the test fees is £34.00 so better be prepared before you go for the test. You can prepare for the test by studying chapters 2, 3 and 4 of ‘Life in the United Kingdom: A Journey to Citizenship’ available from The Stationery Office or from bookshops across the UK (priced at £9.99).
