There was a similar thread a while ago I know talking about the US citizenship exam, but I thought I'd expand this.

Anyway, I decided to have a go at both the UK and US citizenship exams today. I failed the British one horrendously (I got only half the marks needed to pass). The US one I passed with 95%.

So, could YOU pass your own country's citizenship exams?

Poll coming...

In the US one, you have to memorize all the presidents in order of inauguration, so no, I couldn't.

You're a deist now?



That's not that hard...

ANd yes, I'm a deist.

Probably not. I know alot about the historry but I've forgotten a lot about politics.

I don't know what the UK one asks, but i'd probably fail. There was a ten question US one I passed fully, but I doubt that's the full test.

Fuck off Fassa, you're not a deist and you didn't get 95% on the American citizenship exam.

It's online if you want to attempt a practice test...I think.

I looked it up just now, shouldn't be too hard. A few silly questions though.

erm, no. My family is full of immigrants and the ones that took the test said it was incredibly easy and never mentioned anything like that.

The British one is ridiculous. I've lived here all my life and I can't answer a lot of questions, like the alternate names for the Church of England.

Yeah, it is. I got 13 out of 24 (54%). Which is a fail. Though in all fairness who just walks around with the knowledge of how many parliamentary consticuancies
there are? I can't even spell constichuanies. It definitely starts with a 'c'.

Considering my source is Kahn Souphanousinphone, I could be wrong. On the test daytripper posted in an old thread, I passed. So hurray me.

We took portions of the tests in school as a "fun" thing for the class to do. It was all stuff I'd learned before but exercised my constitutional right to not give a shit about.
This is why I don't like arguing on the internet.

At least you can feel better knowing you got a way better mark than I did.

Memorizing that list can't be that hard either. It's like memorizing two alphabets.

Oh I think it's very valuable to know why the Huguenots first came to Britain. What sort of ignoramus wouldn't want that under their belt?

The UK one is ridiculous! I fail at being British. Fortunately however, being truly British I take that on the chin and reservedly say "drat!".

Crazy days.

You make SO many threads. Seriously. (no offense)

OT: I'm Canadian, but I lived in Michigan for awhile. I had to take the constitution test in school and I passed it with a C. Not the best score, but considering I'm from Canada and had only lived there for a short time, I think I did well. I did study a lot for it, though.

If you passed with an A, the teacher took you out for lunch. Only 12 people passed with an A.

EDIT: Might be different then what you meant, but still, similar.

I'm really not cut out to be British, apparently.
