Synopsis

Find out just how British you jolly well are: 500 multiple choice questions based on the Home Office Citizenship test

Can you beat the 51% of British 18- to 24-year-olds who failed the test? Includes genuine, nationality-defining questions such as:

What are the contents of the 1689 Bill of Rights?

What qualifications does the Queen have?

Who was/is Richard Arkwright, Sake Dean Mahomet, John Petts or David Weir?

Which of the following truly originated in Britain?

A. St George
B. Tea bag
C. Pubs
D. Fish and Chips

Grab your family or friends and test yourself with 500 sample questions. The answers will inform, surprise and above all, make you laugh.

Are you the bee's knees or Britain's biggest plonker?

These questions are based on the official Home Office handbook that prepares newcomers for the test they have to pass to obtain UK citizenship. Filled with questions on the Salmon Act of 1986 and the reasons Brits keep pets, chances are that unless you've studied and memorised the book from cover to cover, you'll probably lose the plot.

With Brexit and all this talk of sovereignty, the question of what it really means to be British has never been so important, so here is your chance to see how you measure up to your county's expectations.

The best of British luck to you!
