Life in the UK Test


With the growing immigration in Europe, many are the ones that decide to naturalise. Naturalization to become a UK Citizen can be a long proccess and since the 1st of November of the year 2005, before you submit an application for citizenship, you additionally must pass the UK government's new Life in the UK citizenship test. Once you received your certification confirming that you have got at least 75% of the questions right and therefore passed the life in the UK test, applicants still have to send your documentation and wait for around six months for their application to be proccessed and then they have a final interview to get your British passport.

There are schools and sites that help you prepare for the exam and that can help you succeed with your application! In the event you are not married to a Brit Citizen you'll need to fulfill the following conditions:

- You need to be aged 18 or over and not be of unsound mind.


- You have to be of great character.

- You need to have the ability to speak in the English language (or Welsh or Scottish Gaelic). Exemptions to this condition are for example if the applicant is aged or emotionally disabled.


- In addition the candidate should have satisfied the six-year condition of living in the UK.


You need to have had indefinite leave to stay (sometimes also called permanent residency or ILR) to have the capacity to apply for naturalization.
The processing times for naturalisation uses is now about six to seven months.

You need to have been residing in the Uk at the start of the six-year span; and
during the previous 12 months of the six-year period you mustn't have been for more than 90 days out of the country. During the past 12 months of the six-year span your stay in the United kingdom should have held permanent residency/ indefinite leave to remain (ILR).

Furthermore, you should not have been residing in the United Kingdom in violation of UK immigration rules at any given time during the six-year interval ending with all the date that the Home Office receives the application.


The conditions for naturalisation as a partner of a British citizen are much the same to those mentioned previously. The key difference is because there's a shorter residency requirement of 3 years in britain instead of 6 years. The three years of the residency condition are counted from the exact date the Home Office receives your naturalisation application.

Emmeline Pankhurst - A British Figure

Emmeline Pankhurst was a great woman! She turned, ever heroically, to face the challenges of public life.
The general public program was the place where she learned to wield her power than any competitor since or before. Girls in her day weren't designed to make public addresses. When, in Europe, every other problem was swamped by the outbreak of war in August 1914, Emmeline came to the rapid decision the defeat of republican France wouldn't function the women's cause or anybody else's. At times of such pressure, she was accused of treachery to her very own cause.

Emmeline had the patience to await the brand new victories to fit the audacity of the great suffragette efforts, and understood what she was fighting for.
However, if the landscape had changed so drastically, no one had done to reach it than her. Emmeline Pankhurst released her autobiography, My Own Story, in 1914.

The Battle of Trafalgar

The battle of Trafalgar was a historical marine battle fought off the Cape of Trafalgar, with forces from Spain and France and Britain clashing. This battle resulted in Lord Horatio Nelson being one of Britain's most well-known war heroes, as he directed the British fleet to success.The Battle of Trafalgar was his most well-known victory however he was well known and observed for winning significant conflicts in Denmark, the Caribbean and Egypt before that. Nelson stepped up to take the lead in planning the assault that ultimately brought down the French Navy.

Vice Admiral Pierre-Charles Villeneuve on the other hand, controlling the French, was enduring a serious deficit of both supplies and people. But Nelson was made to send several boats to Gibraltar for supplies and then one boat back to Britain with Sir Robert Calder, which left the British force depleted and gave Villeneuve a glance of expectation because of his assault.

Nelson was the top boat, aboard The Triumph and, got a bullet in his back from a French sniper. Afterwards perished and he was taken below the deck to be treated, but perished in the knowledge that his fleet was not defeated. When news of the victory reached British shores, community and private parties were held throughout the nation. This marked the launch of an age when power was held by Britain within Europe and command of the seas. Nevertheless, merriment was overshadowed by the loss of an epic and masterful leader, and Nelson is also celebrated by parties of success and commemorate those lost.
