Channel 4 are currently showing a season of programmes about multicultural Britain and as part of this they have highlighted the British Citizenship Test.
The test is required by law for individuals seeking Indefinite Leave to Remain in the UK or naturalisation as a British citizen. The test is up of 24 multiple-choice questions and to pass the candidate must receive a grade of 75% or more or at least 18 answers correct.
I recently took an online version of the test and failed.
Despite being born in the UK and having spent most of my life here, I only got 13 correct. Therefore I would not be allowed to become a citizen, but in my defence there were no questions about Doctor Who, Charles Dickens or Toffee Crisps.
Take a version of the British Citizenship Test for yourself.
