Born and educated here in OZ and doubt I could pass ours either. In fact I have never seen it but one can bet that being designed by a Gov't agency it  will be ludicrous.

I'm not cynical (Much) just speaking from experience.  :doh:

How does this determine if you are good enough to be a British citizen? I have a reasonable British education and only scored 18 as an English national!  :scratch:

Somewhere as a shite RAF corporal in 1949, I was issued with a book called 'The British Way and Purpose'.
Basically it answered a lot of the so called questions. Ironically, it still seems to be available today.

Probably Prince Harry nailed it- as other Prince Harrys did centuries before- bring back National Service!

One thing that us old farts seem to agree is the old Colchester Military Detention  barracks seemed to cure about 98% of the wrong doers. I went once as escort which was enough for me.

I got 60%. I'd probably fail,but I'm not sure I would want to live in a country that asks such daft questions as part of a citizenship test, anyway.....OZ.

Hmm, 16/20. I should probably have paid more attention in history classes... God I hated all that King Tarquin the Mumbleteenth/Queen Henry the VIIIIIth stuff.
Cheers!
