    Oooh 15/24. Not a citizen, never lived in the UK… but I'll have to learn more of that country's history if I want to come study there next year (for personal culture though, I live in the EU so no need for a right to remain in the UK).

    (shame on me I didn't even knew who drawn the ECHR, I live near the Council of Europe)

    23/24 and i'm american.

    i got all but "No laws passed by the Parliament can be challenged by any British court" right. the idea that Parliament can pass laws and the courts can't challenge those laws is kinda scary to me. i assume the brits have another way of changing/challenging laws passed by Parliament?
    Yeah, the second chamber (House of Lords) basically checks legislation. Royal assent (Queen has to sign it) and the European Union will assrape us if we create laws that are against human rights n stuff. Or against any important EU shizz.

    Courts do have some role in it. Cos they can declare a law incompatible if it conflicts with EU legislation, and ignore it. And although its not exactly allowed, the courts can be VERY selective of what legislation they follow if they dont agree with it. There's always ways to weasel out of a decision if they dont feel it's 'suitable' to the facts of a case.

    Lol, I'm not over enthusiastic and said that they could challenge laws made by Parliament. I was raving when I got that wrong. Someone needs to teach these motherfuccers about Factortame

    "# After Scotland which country is the largest in the United Kingdom?" I think my browser is having problems with it, it's trying to tell me that it's not England but Wales...

    Edit:
    "After Scotland which country is the largest in the United Kingdom?
    Northern Ireland
    England
    Wales"

    Why on earth does it think England is smaller than Wales?
    Edit edit: because it's after Scotland.
    That question is phrased mis-leadingly.

    When me and my Dad had to revise for this test about a month ago, he was getting annoyed because he was sure that every English person would fail if they had to do this test.

    Glad you guys proved me right (by the way, 100% )

    To me the 'After' meant which is the biggest after Scotland, England is bigger than Scotland, meaning that you should consider it before Scotland and come to the conclusion that Wales is the correct answer.

    Edit: Thanks for the map btw :rolleyes:
    That's exactly like saying "what's the highest number between 1 and 10, after 6?"
    Very very poorly worded question, not my interpretation.
    Given that the majority of people taking the test for real aren't native english speakers you'd think they'd make an effort to not make the questions ambiguous/crap.

    If you look at some of the other tests on there as well you can see there is some shockingly poor English on them. No way are those questions actually used on any official tests.

    There was one about who you can send a thank you to on boxing day. The options were something like postman, binman, milkman, all of the above. I just thought, well you can send a thank you to whoever the hell you want on any day. Is that a boxing day tradition or something? I've never heard of it.
