Passing the citizenship test, also known as the “Life in the UK” test, is one of the criteria for becoming a British citizen or settling in the UK.
You must also have spent a certain period of time in the country, pass an English language test, and not have any criminal convictions.
The test includes questions on a range of aspects of British culture and history.
People who failed can take the test as many times as they like, but each attempt to pass the test costs £50.
