    I tried the mock test three times and failed. Luckily my husband, who is a foreign national, sat and passed it. He had been doing intense revision on all things British beforehand though. I guess I just wasn't interested or patriotic enough.

    It's a fairly easy test, but horrifically named. The reason why people fail it despite having lived in UK their whole lives is because a lot of what it tests is basically a summary of British history, which doesn't really have much relevance to the everyday life of anybody in the UK who doesn't take an interest in history (i.e. most of the population).

    The website is a little glitchy at times so I wouldn't trust the online scores

    I've passed mine few years ago, took me less than 5 minutes
    if your house mate read the (updated) book, and do the test online few times he (she?) will have no problem passing it.

    I tried the practice ones 4 times and failed all of them (but was 1 mark away from a pass on the last one I did). I didn't think they would be so history based, I don't know **** about history haha

    Yes, if you make a donation of £100 000 to the country of your choice. I'll accept the payment on their behalf. :innocent:

    That's a pass. A bare pass, but a pass nonetheless. You need to get 75 percent or higher to pass. :beard:
