New Life in the UK test guide: most borrowed book in London libraries

New Life in the UK test

The new Life in the UK test is a multiple-choice quiz compulsory to obtain British citizenship or settlement in the UK. Applicants have 45 minutes to answer 24 questions about British traditions and customs. The pass rate is 75%.

Life in the United Kingdom: A Guide for New Residents is the official handbook of the new Life in the UK test and includes information such as the English Civil War or the different religious festivals. The book covers the values and principles of the UK, what is the UK, UK history, society, religions, customs, sport, arts and culture, leisure, places of interest, the UK government, the law and the role of its citizens.

This test guide was the most borrowed book in London libraries in 2013/2014, showing the number of newcomers wishing to pass this test.

This new test has been criticised for not being practical enough, and instead focusing too much on history. The book for example doesn’t teach newcomers how to call an ambulance.

The amount of information can be overwhelming and difficult to memorise. A guided training program can be very helpful in successfully preparing for this new Life in the UK test.
