For the Grand National question, I got stumped due to being too specific. I was typing in things such as "handicap", "jump", "flat" etc.

I’m always amazed by what is considered necessary knowledge in a citizenship test. I am British and I “passed”, but I don’t know how many constituencies there are, nor do I care, nor has it ever been necessary for me to know! Many of the others also seem like random trivia rather than key knowledge for being a successful and integrated citizen.

Completely agree about the constituencies. I doubt many British people know that, and have no idea why they would need to.

I agree about the random trivia. I've seen the US test, and I recall it's much more focused on history and the nature of the US government. This test seems to dip into the realm of pub trivia. Very odd.

Pub trivia is very British though! :-) But you're right, it is random trivia and is odd for a citizenship test.

Good quiz.

On a separate note I feel as if we should be focusing more on cultural integration rather than peoples ability to study and regurgitate information.

100% with 43 seconds remaining.

Not bad for someone who isn't British.

Although I had over two minutes to spare with the constituency question so kept guessing until I got it right. I knew it had to be around that number when the Scottish Welsh etc constituencies are taken from the 650 in the UK overall.

Not getting why there's a question about lent there though. Isn't that a season observed by Christians worldwide?
