I failed, but then I'm not British :-)

I'm sure I wouldn't be able to answer them even if I would be born here. The best question is 'The House of Commons is the more important than the House of Lords? ' ...lol

3/12 :-d

A lot of them are just general knowledge quiz questions.

oops 3/12 for me and I'm 100% british

Didn't really seem like british Q's to me, would have thought they might have been a bit modern

my friend is originally from south africa, she's been here 30 yrs, and she recently took some kind of test so she could get a british passport.. maybe it was this kind of thing

"Which government service, money raised from income tax does NOT pays for? "

WHAT!?!

I failed. 100% White British.

Where am I being shipped to and who's replacing me?

That looks like a victim of a grammar check to be honest.

Interesting to see how badly we all did. I managed 83% with 10/12, but I guessed almost every single answer. Never heard of Huguenots although the persecution thing seemed like a nice story, only got Ugandans right because in The Filth & The Fury there's an angry white man shouting about black people and I guessed that the dates maybe matched up, only guessed 45% of the work force being women since it was the lowest number and women tend to have babies, half-knew about the census one because of the 190somthing ones getting some press a couple of yeas ago, got the one about the Church Of England right only because Anglia has something to do with England (what, I honestly have no idea), and the rest, I went for pretty much on a whim. If it was a written test, I don't think I'd have had any points at all. I do like the idea of a Britishness quiz, but I think the powers that be have totally gone the wrong way about it. It should all be stuff like "What's the correct accompanyment to a cup of tea?", or things about the social rules of British culture, and that sort of thing, shouldn't it?

12 out of 12 A true Brit am I:)

OP are you male/female?

That's quite funny really because most of the Ugandan immigrants were Asian rather than African. Idi Amin kicked all of them out; or more precisely made it very unattractive for them to stay. :whistling:

I got 10/12 but the test really doesn't measure your "Britishness".

5/12 lol
