Where do i book for a test?
What mark do i have to get to pass the Life In The Uk test?
You must score 18 out of 24.What’s one question that will always come up?
The test is computer- based and multiple choice. You are given 45 minutes to complete it. You’ll also need to bring ID (passport/ Biometric residency permit) and proof of address i.e Original Bank Statement.
Words of advice:
- Take your time and read the question/answer properly. Most of the questions are common sense, however the way a question is worded might trip you up.Remember you have 45 mins to complete it. Even if it takes you 10 minutes to complete it, go over it again.
- Arrive at the text centre early. If you are late, you might not get in. THESE PEOPLE DON’T PLAY. And then you’ll be pissed because you gotta pay another £50.
- Have the CORRECT proof of address! I saw people getting turned away for not having the correct proof of address. This lovely woman, bless her heart, got turned away because her bank statement was printed from online. Please call the test centre to verify that you have the correct documents. Or better yet visit the centre a few days before your test.
- If you do not have the right proof of address i.e an original bank statement , you will get turned away. You won’t get your money back too.
Expect a question on the patron saints.What do you think is the best way to revise and pass this test?
A lil heads up :
Who When Where
St. David 1 March Wales St. Patrick 17 March Northern Ireland St. George 23 April England St. Andrew 30 November Scotland
Like i said the majority of these questions are common sense i.e. What day is Christmas day celebrated on? But do you know what the uk population was in 2009? I doubt any brit knows that. So revise your arse off and do practice test questions online.
After living in the UK for over 21 years legally and illegally,
would you consider yourself British?
I have struggled with trying to pin down my cultural identity. So here it is, I am a lot of things. I am british. I am black british. I am an african living in the diaspora too. End of! I don’t need to prove anything or justify anything. It is what it is, okuuuur!
How do you stay connected to Naija?

Walking through Peckham rye lane on a saturday afternoon.
All jokes aside, Naija never ever leaves you. Never! I miss the Mr Biggs’ meat pies.
