A couple of months ago, I had to pass the Life in the UK test as part of my application for Indefinite Leave to Remain in the UK (which was ultimate successful, yay!).
After the test, I immediately wrote down as many questions as I could remember. I invite you, dear reader, to have a stab at answering these questions.
They were all multiple choice (but I didn’t remember the answer options – was hard enough recalling nearly the entire test!) and the phrasing is likely different but the essence of the question remains.
Life in the UK test 2016 – most of the questions that I remembered:
- Who was the King who united the Anglo Saxons and defeated the Vikings?
- Who is the patron saint of England?
- What country is Prince Charles the prince of?
- Where was the Battle of Britain fought?
- What is the name of long war between England and France in Middle Ages?
- Who was king or queen when England started colonising the Eastern part of North America?
- What era had the largest amount of social change and the Beatles?
- Name the two types of people who can be in youth court in England, Northen Ireland, and Wales
- True/False – Dog collard must have the owners name and address?
- Where are the crown jewels kept>
- Where is the home of the Prime Minister?
- What was Isaac Newton famous for?
- The 1689 bill of rights gave all males the right to vote. True or false
- In what year was the voting age 21?
- What is one of the responsibilities of the Home Secretary?
- True/False – Violence towards married or unmarried partners can be prosecuted.
- What type of charity is Friends of the Earth?
I know I passed that test because they said so, but I never received a list of which questions I got right and which I didn’t.
How did you fare?
