Heavens to mergatrode. 54%. But really how much of this stuff makes you a better citizen. I hve a couple of South African friends who have recently gained UK citizenship. When you get 'sworn' in you have to swear allegance to the Queen or some such. So much for me again. Since when have you not been able to be a republican and not be a good citizen. Silly stuff indeed.

Woohoo! 63%!
Does that mean I have to stay?
An old-school, no-bullshit, boys-own action/adventure comic reminiscent of the 2000ads and Eagles and Warlords and Battles and other glorious black-and-white comics that were so, so cool in the 70's and 80's - Buy the hardback Christmas Annual!

Keeping suspiciously quite about your score, there, Rennie. I've had my doubts about you for quite some time, laddie. Oh, yes!

What's that you say? What did I score? *coughcoughcough*fiftyfourpercent*coughcough*

Cheers!

I managed a mere 46%. However, I don't feel so bad about that since I rushed through it, didn't check my answers and misread a few as a result! And on one or two of the numerical ones I was only out by a margin (I mean, what's the difference bewtween 15 and 16 million under-19s unless you're a planning department of some variety?).

Odd mix of questions, some that seemed entirely reasonable, others that seemed irrelevant. However, if you think about it, there's a logic to some of them. For example, the utterly bizarre one about the year of women's right to divorce. Most of us won't know the answer, but some cultures and countries might not allow divorce at all, so putting the date in the test handbook is part of educating potential applicants about women's rights in the UK. The question seems stupid to us, but it's a subtle and rather important part of understanding British life.


Regards

Robin

I got 50% but it was mostly guesswork.

As for 'Ulster Scots is a dialect which is spoken in Northern Ireland.' well it's true but I suspect more people can and do speak Klingon than Ulster Scots.

What a stupid set of questions.

Can I go live in Australia now please?

Questions answered correctly: 15 out of 24 (63%)

Time taken: 04 minutes 39 seconds


Hoo-ray getting deported. Think if I had the book the answers were drawn from I'd scoosh it. That said for some Polish chap it must seem fiendishly difficult - how many teenagers in the UK? Correct answer of 'how the fuck should I know' wasn't even offered!

63% here as well.

Guess that they're going to have to build a bigger boat for us all.

(BTW, the Welsh are another group of people that don't have to pay for prescriptions so I got that question wrong.)
