When to take the life in the UK test?
There are several reasons why immigrants choose to take the Life in the UK Test. Some of the reasons are written below.
– They (the immigrants) want to move to Britain and reside there permanently.
This is one of the most common reasons why immigrants want to take the Life in the UK Test. Majority of them wants to be a legal British citizen, and one of the prerequisites to become one is to pass the Life in the UK Test and other tests that may come after it.
Passing the test means one step closer to realizing their dream. They need to pass several other tests and some documents may need to be submitted in the Home Office to process their British citizenship.
– They want to apply for an Indefinite Leave to Remain.
If the immigrants are refugees or if they decide that they should stay here for humanitarian reasons, they are allowed to take the Life in the UK Test for a chance to apply for an Indefinite Leave to Remain. This is different from a British citizenship, he or she can settle on any country of the United Kingdom but he or she isn’t still recognized as a British citizen, as the immigrant is still not legally listed as a Briton, until he or she decides to apply for one.
They are also required to take the ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) and the British citizenship tests.
The applicant must have basic command of the English language, and have basic computer skills, such as operating the keyboard and mouse. Your English mastery level should also be at ESOL entry 3 or above, or in Scotland, Intermediate Level 1 or above. Meeting these requirements lets you take the Life in the UK Test anytime you wish.
