    You're back again, trying to promote your broken website? I left it the first time, but seriously?

    I notice you never responded to this (despite responding to my other post).
    (Original post by JoeTSR)
    Pull the other one.

    You don't need to do any emailing, you joined yesterday and posted this thread within 10 minutes of your first post.
    And at least be a bit more original with your usernames:

    They could pass it if they listened in school.

    Well, the thing is, some of the questions are not thought in school.

    I did history GCSE in school and some of the questions are not familiar with me, nor do they ring any bells.

    Or if the material actually had something to do with living in the UK.

    I stopped doing history at 14. I still got most of the history questions right

    Some of the questions are, like my personal favourite "what time does a public house open?"

    But yes I do agree there.

    well, that is down to the individual, some people may not get it right.

    Anyway, I don't see the point of this test, it does not test your actual knowledge of Britain because its just like a guessing game.

    It isn't a guessing game if you know the answer.

    It may be pointless, but it's not a guessing game. There's an official book which contains everything you need to know to pass this test. Anybody who studies for it can pass it with relative ease, no guesswork involved.

    The test is not meant to be taken blind. There are handbooks which cover all of the knowledge required for the test.

    In other words, it's an examination of general knowledge to be acquired through reading and understanding English texts covering history, literature, arts, geography, social structure, politics, popular culture, laws, the EU etc. The sort of things one picks up with years of experience and not necessarily through formal education.

    The exam lasts 45 minutes for 24 questions which is hardly taxing unless there is no motivation or ability to apply oneself or have difficulty reading and understanding English.

    If you have the ability to enter GCSE level education including English Literature (from year 9 onwards) you should have no problems in studying for and passing these exams.
