The 'life in the United Kingdom' citizenship test : is it unfit for purpose ?

Brooks, Thom (2013) 'The 'life in the United Kingdom' citizenship test : is it unfit for purpose ?', Durham University, Durham.

Abstract

The 'Life in the United Kingdom' test is an important part of British immigration policy attracting cross-party support. This report is the most comprehensive and rigorous examination of the test available. The report considers how the current edition compares with previous editions and it identifies several problems that should be addressed in a future edition. The report supports 12 recommendations. "Dr. Brooks' 'The Life in the UK Citizenship Test: Is it Unfit for Purpose?' report is a welcome addition to the sensible immigration debate. I am delighted to echo his call that the test, which is both impractical and irrelevant as it stands, be reformed. Surely future Britons should better understand how to participate in daily life, instead of knowing by rote which Emperor invaded Britain in AD 43? Dr. Brooks' research into the new Life in the UK citizenship test has exposed major flaws, and we must make Government wake up." - Lord Roberts, Vice-Chair of All-Party Parliamentary Group on Migration
