Welcome to 2017. I must admit that 2016 took the whole world by storm. The whole brexit thing took us in the UK by storm. As a result there is an increased influx of applicants for the British citizenship.
As we all know, everybody must pass the life in the UK test before applying for naturalization and later their first British passport. The test has been unchanged since 2013, and proves to be a valid method for testing applicants for their knowledge of United Kingdom.
The latest statistics show that the average pass-rate remains at 70.9% for January 2017 and is even higher for those applicants coming from English speaking countries. For example, migrants from the USA, Canada and Australia have a 95% of passing the test first-time, while people from Pakistan and India showed the lowest first-time pass rates.
We can’t stress it enough – prepare for this test. There are numerous practice websites available to become familiar with the test format by completing multiple choice mock tests. All tests are highly realistic and were designed to mimic the official. Make sure to book the test using the official sources.
The immigration rules are very likely to change in 2017, which is why we suggest to avoid the possible uncertainty.
