    Apparently Wales is the second biggest country in Britain after Scotland?! :lolwut:
    Oh, come on... has the quiz maker ever been to Wales?

    EDIT: I now realise the question was a trick-question. Misleading quiz!

      They have some really stupid questions though that are pure statistics and serve no purpose, such as : How many Jewish people came to Britain during the World Wars, Nearly three quarters of the UK women don't work (true or false) etc etc

      What does an MP do?
      -Meets other MPs to talk about the good old days... lol, deary me.

      I'm Norwegian and got 19/24. The test is quite stupid though, and most of the answers rather obvious.
      Not to mention the sexist questions.

      I don't get Q3
      "After Scotland which country is the largest in the United Kingdom?"
      Is there something I'm missing here? I'm sure England is bigger than Wales...? Or does it exclude England because it's bigger than Scotland? Argh, I'm confused already. The poor immigrants taking this test!

      mmm, I would suggest that passing a test doesn't necessarily make one British.

      -Northern Ireland
      -England
      -Wales
      Apparently Wales is the correct answer, not England, even though England has a higher population and land area. Am I missing something? :confused:

      (Also, 18/24.)

      18/24, so just :p: But some of those questions (and particularly the answer options) were ridiculous. I heavily doubt that this is an accurate depiction of what the tests are like.

      I love some of the questions though, "How does the British Government attempt to prevent unauthorized immigration?" BLATANTLY
      "By establishing an Iron Curtain, in the late 1980s" :rofl:
      Also, so many misogynistic ones as well!

      Having just read the questions, I'm appalled that that test is taken to determine whether someone attains a British passport - what an embarrassment. Taking a test written by someone who cannot understand the usage of capital letters. Wouldn't be surprised if an immigrant wrote it.
