July 2007

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. From April 2007, a revised edition of the book has been released with some of the errors corrected and the book given more professional look. If you take your test before 2 April 2007, it will be based on chapters 2, 3 and 4 of the first edition of 'Life in the United Kingdom: A Journey to Citizenship'. If you take the test on or after 2 July 2007, it will be based on chapters 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 of the second edition of 'Life in the United Kingdom: A Journey to Citizenship'. You can buy the second edition from The Stationery Office or from bookshops across the UK. If you take your test between 2 April 2007 and 1 July 2007, you can be tested on either the first edition or the second edition of the handbook. When you arrive at the test centre, you will be asked which handbook you studied.

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 UK: A Journey to Citizenship 2007: A Journey to Citizenship book. The ultimate aim is to collect more than 500 questions and answers. From the feedback we have received, people have told us that these questions are generally more than enough to pass the test but as mentioned above, we would recommend buying the official 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, 4, 5 and 6 of Life in the UK: A Journey to Citizenship 2007: A Journey to Citizenship available from The Stationery Office or from bookshops across the UK (priced at £9.99).
