This Wednesday 28th March marks my 5 year anniversary of moving to England. It was that day I landed at Heathrow, went through immigration and found myself a resident of a new country. Somehow 5 years has gone by, I don’t know where the time has gone, it has absolutely flown. I’m now more settled, and know the ins and outs of life in Britain far better than I did 5 years ago. How much so is about to be put to the test.
On my 5 year anniversary I have scheduled my Life in the UK test which I am required to pass in order to apply for British citizenship, which I will be eligible for as of Wednesday. It is a test similar to the one Canada puts its new immigrants through, in that most Canadians would not be able to pass the test themselves. There is a wide range of questions of which I will have to answer 24. Luckily they are multiple choice and true of false, of which I can get 6 wrong, a 75% pass mark is needed.
It has been a long while since I have had to write a test that really mattered so you may find me a bit quite this week as I do some last-minute cramming for Wednesday afternoon.
