HOW CAN I PREPARE FOR A LIFE IN THE UK TEST?
These are tests that will have a big impact on your life. Passing them is important. It’s something you’ll need to get British citizenship or settle in the UK. You may be able to do that on your own. And you can also benefit from the expertise available by working with motivated people who’ve helped others to pass the test. Athletes have coaches, and that’s the kind of dedicated support Fast Track Training provides.
The test itself consists of 24 questions. You’ll need to get at least 18 right. Some of them crop up frequently, others are rare. And having the understanding needed is about developing a sense of which is more likely to be right even if you don’t know for sure. That takes time and guidance is helpful.
Subjects covered in the test include British history as far back as the days of Stonehenge, and up to World War Two and beyond. And there are questions concerning what shapes Britain now – arts and culture from William Wordsworth to J.K. Rowling, football and other sports, the role of the Church of England, traditions like April Fool’s Day, and more.
All of those subjects help explain why Britain is what it is, and its laws and customs are as they are. That affects the values and principles a British person is expected to uphold as an individual and member of a community and the legal implications for people who don’t abide by those principles.
It’s a lot to take in. And passing it without support will be a lot harder than with skilled guidance, both about the range of subjects and techniques for the test itself. At the point you’re ready, the test will last 45 minutes, with questions determined randomly. Every time you take the test costs you £50, so spending some additional money to have a much better chance of passing it the first time is a good investment.
