    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.
    They actually tend to be like that.

    I'm not showing off. I don't consider myself British and I don't have a British passport either so there is nothing to gain from it.

    I meant what happens to a prospective Brit if they get below 75%?
    I believe that you're simply not allowed in. But you can retake the test as often as you need until you do pass it.

    I didn't even know what the first question was asking of me lol. Politics and all that crap doesn't interest me in the slightest. I can name more US presidents then I can prime ministers, and that's only through watching the Simpsons.

    22/24 - and I'm not even a citizen lol.

    But I disagree with this one (as an over-enthusiastic law student blatantly):

    No laws passed by the Parliament can be challenged by any British court --- I sensed the 'right' answer would be 'true' but I chose 'false' due to some recent cases which call that into question (and overturn that principle really). Though they gave me a cross on the test! They should avoid objectionable questions tbh.
    I hate quiz questions that have the 'technically correct' and 'technically wrong but widely believed as true' answers. My common sense tells me one thing but my pedantism tells me another!

    The questions in that quiz are quite sensible, and don't have ridiculous answers to the same degree as the one in the first post.

    To be fair, the question wasn't worded properly. After Scotland, Wales is obviously the largest. It's a deliberate trick question. I guessed the Welsh one about 7, 11 and something else(and got it right lol), as I had no idea what the question was on about
