The process of Life in the UK Test
Taking the Life in the UK Test consists of many different steps:
First, you should book and pay for the test. This can be done by going to your local test center and book the exam. You are required to present some documents, give your personal details, and pay a fee of £34 (or you can pay it later during the test).
After registering for the test, you should wait for your turn to take the test. You will be notified by the test center within 28 days. During this time, you should prepare and study for the test.
On the test day, you are once again asked for your personal details. This is to verify that you have really registered for the test. If you haven’t paid for the test yet, you will be asked to pay the test fee or else you will not be allowed to take the test.
Afterwards, you are given a choice to take a Practice test, or wait and take the actual test. Should you choose to take a Practice test first, you will be given a mock test similar to that of the actual test. This test, however, will not affect your Life in the UK Test results. You can take down notes if you wish to, but all notes must be surrendered to the test supervisor upon leaving the room.
After taking the practice test/s, you are now to take the actual Life in the UK Test. You are given a 45-minute time limit to answer all 24 questions. After finishing the test, you will be asked to wait for your test results.
The test supervisor, after 10-30 minutes, will announce and give you your test Result Notification Letter. Do not lose this document, as this is very important and helpful to you whether you have passed or failed the test.
