Immigration Minister Tony McNulty is publicising sample questions ahead of the test coming into force on Tuesday.
People seeking to become British will take the test at one of 90 centres across the country, before taking part in a formal citizenship ceremony. The “Life in the UK” test is the last of a series of changes to how people become British brought in by the former Home Secretary David Blunkett.
The Home Office says that it wanted to create a new more meaningful way of becoming a citizenship in an effort to help people integrate and share in British values and traditions. Prospective new citizens already need to demonstrate sufficient working knowledge of English to help them get on.
Take the test

I got a score of 9 out of 15 and apparently that means I should get a seat on the district council, rather than wait for my deportation orders!
