Brits and expats try UK citizenship test, fail spectacularly

How many of these lighthearted questions can you answer correctly?



It seems Britons are not so great at being, er, British, if results of a recent UK citizenship test are anything to go by.

A video of Brits in residence and expats answering the silliest questions in the informal British citizenship test in order to stay in a post-Brexit UK was created by international relocations experts MoveHub.

One of the ridiculous questions asked was 'when did Britain become permanently separate from the continent by the Channel?' Another asked the Brits to name two regular soap operas in the UK.

At the end, one of the men asks, 'do I get automatically deported now?'

The real test, which was introduced in 2005 and rewritten in 2013, can be retaken no sooner than a week later and as many times as you need to.

Immigrants are asked to answer 18 out of 24 questions correctly, with subjects including historical facts, popular culture and politics.

And if you thought the questions in the video above were wacky, these are some of the real practice questions you won't believe:

- What kind of bird do people usually eat on Christmas Day?

- Some public places have alcohol-free zones where you cannot drink in public - True or False?

- Which of these forts were part of Hadrian's Wall? (Choose any 2 answers)
Housesteads
Skara Brae
Sutton Hoo
Vindolanda

- In 55BC Julius Caesar led a Roman invasion of Britain. It was unsuccessful & for how many years did Britain remained separate from the Roman Empire?
