British Immigration Exam Quiz

Bloody Heck! I am embarrassed. I missed three (won't say which ones) on the U.K. sample immigration exam test questions here:

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/ukne...tion-exam.html

On the real exam, no doubt with many more questions, they expect 75%-- I missed.

Poppy is a flower? *****, anyway, got 90 % due to this cock up, but then again, I only pretend to be British in spelling.

I wonder how many Brits could pass it.

Ten out of ten. Hopefully this means I can have a turn at being king or something.

I think you have to learn how to fly a helicopter before you can do that. In English.

Same here. Scored 100%, though It's kinda unfair for me since I lived there from '95 - '97. Rather prefer Oz than the UK (something about vindaloo and teeth.. ick. Give me timtams and a Four'n'Twenty meat pie!)

I think I'll stay on the continent anyway it's much quieter down here and we drive on the proper side of the road.

Test or no test it won't stop the Romanians and Bulgarians according to that paragon of truth the Daily Mail.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...g-Britain.html

I think I'll stay on this side of the water, as GC says you drive funny.

Funnily it was never the driving in the UK that was a problem for me, it was the stepping off the kerb.
