The “Life in the UK Test” costs £50 and includes 24 multiple-choice questions, with a score of 75 per cent required to pass. 6 Applicants are asked about distant and recent history, with questions in the official handbook to prepare for the exam covering everything from sporting achievements to royal executions. … © The Times, London/News Licensing This article originally appeared in The Times, London. — bid Versuch 4 – 6 oh my goodness ach du meine Güte — effectively praktisch — applicant Anwärter(in) — distant history ältere Geschichte — sporting achievement sportl.
