Life in the UK - practice questions
UK Citizenship Test Study Guide
The Life in the UK test is for those people who want to settle permanently (indefinite leave to remain) or to be a naturalised British Citizen. The test is for those people with a good standard of English. Anyone whose English is not so good (ie someone who cannot understand the information on this site) should take a combined ESOL (English as a Second Language) and Citizenship course. Such courses are available from local further education centres.
There are two ways to learn for the UK citizenship test. The first and most important is to obtain the official handbook 'Life in the United Kingdom: A Journey to Citizenship'. You can also get the Life in the UK Test: Study Guide + CD ROM
The second way to learn is by practicing tests. In practise, many people's learning style is such that doing practice test questions is a much quicker and more effective way of learning for the official test.
You can undertake our free sample practice citizenship tests here.

11-10-11 David Cameron announces changes to UK Citizenship Test
In a wide ranging speech on immigration, David Cameron has announced the first major shakeup of the Uk Citizenship test since its introduction in 2005. It is suggested that in particular there will be a greater emphasis on British culture and history. Such subjects as the Roman conquest, English civil war and the Magna Carta are likely to be included in an updated UK citizenship test.
