How to prepare for the Life in the UK test?
The Life in the UK test is one of two tests you will need to complete to satisfy your KOLL requirements for UK settlement or British citizenship.
The test itself was introduced to the UK in November 2005 which aimed to test foreign national’s knowledge of English language and culture.
This test is to help migrants integrate into UK society easier with general knowledge of UK heritage, culture and history.
It can be difficult to pass this test and we will outline the main ways to prepare for the test.

How many people take the test…and fail?
Over half a million people have taken the Life in the UK test since 2005. Nearly one in three people fail the test.
Over 900,000+ applicants who took the test, roughly 260,000+ failed which meant the success percentage of those taking the test is around 70%.
Now you must be thinking… why do people fail this test?
Why do people fail this test?
The major reason for failing this test is a lack of preparation.
If you go into the test without reading the official handbook (which is included in our online training material) then you will have a pretty poor chance of passing.
That being said if you do not try any practice questions then you will have a tough time answering the real test when you get to it.
