    Same here Keith, Passed, but I got wrong the number of young people that take part in community events (I didn't think riots would count) "In which year did married women get the right to divorce their husband?" wrong :-S and "The percentage of children who live in a stepfamily is?" wrong too :-S

    If you don't study the material you can't really expect to answer all the questions correctly.

    Exactly. This test has absolutely no bearing on how well a foreigner integrates into British society - simply how well a person can memorise a bunch of useless statistics

    Merry Xmas everyone, and sawat dii peemai

    Hardly useless ... I would say absolutely vital statistics if you want to earn British nationality or have the right to remain in the UK indefinitely.

    have to say I agree Gavva
    the test may be a requirement which makes it important to immigrants but the questions display a total detatchment from social interaction and it speaks volumes about ministers and 'I spend most of my time looking for things we need so I can justify keeping my overpaid job and unearned final salary pension' Civil Servants. Nobody in society needs to know whether the populous of NE England has increased or decreased and there should not be trick questions about working age limits.
    The questions should be about real life in English towns not what percentage of the UK is Chinese and or Muslim. Questions that are rascist by definition. If you are truly not rascist you wouldn't be interested in how many are foreigners but that is how our Home Office still perceives them.
    Personally it am ashamed of this test because it reflects on all of us

    Just tried the KOL test. 83 % more by luck than judgement. Would I be better off knowing most of the questions as a foreigner, I dont think so. I cannot see Jan learning the answers in the 2 years of her visa she cannot read them let alone answer them. So it looks like a ESOL course then.

    passed with 92%, 22 points (but I have read the various books about 3 dozen times). It's a shame my wife has to take the test and not me

    Didn't pass this one, though I passed the actual test a few years back. So I think the key is to read and memorize the book as much as possible.

    Tai. Spot on. That is not only the key. It is the only way.

    I've said it before on this forum. It is like an English Literature Exam. You are being tested on your knowledge of a specific book, which is supposed to contain Knowledge of Life in the UK. You are not being tested on your knowledge of life in the UK, but the knowledge contained in their book. Why some husbands (of thai wives) say they couldn't pass it, when they have not studied the book, in depth, leaves me puzzled.

    Totally agree, its is essentially an old school english comprehension test, learn the book and you should pass
