Can you pass a British Citizenship test?

The British citizenship test was taken 125,925 times in 2016. Of those who sat it, 36 per cent failed. But how well would you fare?

Also known as the “Life in the UK” test, this is one of the requirements for anyone seeking naturalisation as a British citizen, designed to prove that the applicant has a sufficient knowledge of British life and sufficient proficiency in the English language.

It consists of 24 questions covering topics such as British values, history, traditions and everyday life.

And although there’s the odd easy question – Name the countries that make up the UK – there are some that will really test your knowledge of the British Isles, including such tricky trivia as “What was the name of Admiral Nelson’s ship?” and “When did Britain become permanently separate from the continent by the channel?”

With Prince Harry’s bride-to-be Meghan Markle set to take the test, see how you fare below:
