"Should I Stay or Should I Go" - Clash, 1982: Update #2

Today's UK residency process update...

Last night, after running through about 96 randomly-selected questions from a CD study aid for the "Life in the UK" manual chapter called "A Changing Society", John asked me if I was ready to try taking a sample of a real test. In other words, he wondered if I was ready to try an example of 24 questions selected from all of the 5 relevant chapters of the handbook. I'd never been brave enough to try that before. And I strongly suspect that John thought I'd say no. But I thought, what the heck. I said ok...although maybe just because of fatigue.

Out of the 24 questions, I missed 6 -- giving me a 75% score -- which means that I passed, although just barely.

I guess I think that's pretty good, given that we still have 10+ days of studying to go.

And I found an interesting website this morning, with a section called "Five Things People Don't Expect When They Take Their Test". It's interesting reading...and some of the items back up what a new office colleague has told me about his experiences when he took the test (although he took the earlier version, which included fewer chapters).

Did you catch the article in the U.S. press that they have revised the citizenship test here as well? I wonder how many current U.S. citizens would pass it?

Well done, Janet. Wish you luck for the real test. ;-)
