Would You Pass The British Citizenship Test If You Had To Take It Today?

  1. Umm, you got less than 15% and will never pass the British citizenship test.

    I’m really sorry to let you down but I think, on some level, you always knew deep down that you will just never be British. But hey, I don’t really think you mind, do you?

  2. I mean, you failed, but at least you tried.

    There’s hope left for you yet. I mean the citizenship is hard. If everyone could pass it, the whole world would be British. Just a little more study and you’ll pass next time, for sure.

  3. You failed. You were so so close though, you’ll definitely pass next time!

    I mean, you nearly passed, which is almost as good. And who even cares how old Big Ben is or when voting reform happened. If the questions were about things that really mattered, like what to put on your fish and chips (vinegar, duh), you’d pass.

  4. Congrats! You’d pass the UK citizenship test!

    It was tough going there for a little while but you made it through. You could just stroll into a test centre and complete the test to become British. Boom.

  5. You’d pass the UK citizenship test with flying colours!

    OMG You are so incredibly British that no will will ever ask you to do this test because they’ll basically just believe you’re already British.
