Life in the UK test – first step to the journey to citizenship
The saying, “moving to greener pastures”, means to seek and find greater opportunities. This might be the mindset of the immigrants moving to the different countries of the United Kingdom, as they have found the “greener pastures” they have been looking for a long time.
They have several reasons on why they chose to move to the United Kingdom; maybe they went here to escape persecution or to find more job opportunities. Or maybe they just want to settle on a quiet place.
Whatever their reasons may be, it all comes down to one main reason. They want to reside permanently on the United Kingdom. But in order for them to do so, one must first pass the requirements needed to becoming a British citizen. One of these requirements is to take the “Life in the UK Test”.
“The Life in the UK Test” determines if you are eligible to apply for a British citizenship or an Indefinite Leave to Remain by asking you several questions on the different aspects of life of a normal citizen of the United Kingdom. This test also requires you to demonstrate knowledge of the English language and some basic computer skills. Should you have no knowledge in these fields, you can take minor lessons, such as ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) and British citizenship classes in order for you to improve your English skills and give you a slight background on what to expect on the “Life in the UK Test”.
There are several study guides for the “Life in the UK Test”, but the most important is the official handbook, “The Life in the UK: A Journey to Citizenship”. You should put the book to good use and study hard, as all the questions in the test are written here.
If you think you are prepared enough to take the test, you can book the test at the nearest testing center and wait for at least a week before you can take the test. Good luck on your first step to your journey to citizenship!
