DSD……British Citizenship Test numbers….

British citizenship test: One in three immigrants fails

Nearly a third of foreigners wanting to make Britain their home failed their citizenship test in 2009, figures show.

Of the 906,464 people who took it, 263,641 failed – meaning the pass rate was 70.9%, Home Office figures show.

The 45-minute test on British society, history and culture is a crucial step on the road to being allowed to settle permanently or full citizenship.

Nationalities with a pass rate below 50% included Iraq, Bangladesh and Turkey – all major sources of migrants.

On the other hand, over 96% of immigrants from Canada, Australia and the USA passed.
