I scored a whooping 9/24 (38%) and by the Goverment Guidelines should be deported.

Thunderplex
I got 45% which would of got rejected.

I'm not British anyway, I'm English, so fuck it.
fye

Yeah, we had this test before on here, had you been allowed to study the literature for some time, like all exams, you'd be reet.
Magnum
29%. I'm out.

johnnyboy
58% but some of the answers are wrong.

E.g. How many bank holidays are there per year in the UK?
They say 4

One, the bank holidays aren't uniform across the whole UK. England and Wales have a different number to Scotland. Two, it's more than 4 either way.

There are different bank and public holidays in different parts of the UK. There are currently six permanent bank holidays in England and Wales and an additional one in 2012. Christmas Day and Good Friday are public holidays...

There are seven permanent bank holidays across the whole of Scotland...

In Northern Ireland, there are eight permanent bank holidays - the same six as in England and Wales, plus St Patrick's Day and the Anniversary of the Battle of the Boyne in 1690. Christmas Day and Good Friday are public holidays.


Fuck you Channel 4, I'm staying.

9/24, fuck the union jack.
ThePhenom
I scored 10 out of 24, with 42%. Oh well I guess!
patiirc
Sure we've done simliar before. 20/24
King Pitcos
71%, failed, almost all guesses.
CurtainTwitcher
33%.

See you in Australia...
Arch Stanton
54%. meh.
Merzbow
54%

Guessed most.

That's an incredibly silly, ill-thought out test.

How on earth is anyone, British or otherwise, supposed to know most of that shit? The only way you could know it is if it's like the driving theory test where they're part of a set bank of questions from a handbook to memorise. Virtually no-one will just happen to know most of that through normal means or having an interest in the country.

I got 10/24. The bank holiday one can't be right though.
Halitosis Romantic
Oh say can you see? I got 54%, and my American wife, who knows nothing about the UK, got 50%. I am shame.

8/24. No questions about Ireland. Racists.

I'd wager that's because Ireland isn't part of the UK.

I was hoping this was judged on things like:

How do you keep the sun off your head?
a) hankie with knots in the corners
b) baseball cap
c) fedora

What the f....oh bums, omitted the rather important N. at the beginning. Must learn to re-read before posting. sad.gif

Edit: Due to not re-reading. confused.gif

I got 15/24. Some I knew, some I guessed. It'd be fairly easy to revise for though.
SpiritOfTheForest
38% which is fine by me because I consider myself Scottish and in no way British. I got the ones about votes for women and the NHS correct because I studied them back in school.
Chest Rockwell
I don't even care enough to take the test, so on the strength of that I'd say "not very British".

Sounds pretty British to me.

Are we an apathetic people, by nature?
Halitosis Romantic

Joking aside, yes. We don't have the optimism that permeates the yanks, thank fuck. Even in the most cynical American cities, they are frequently stuck on the RAH-RAH-RAH setting.

So did David and look what happened to him

I got 58%, most were guesses, only knew a few for definite (NHS, Bank Holidays)

Does it ask if you support Andy Murray when he's winning, then revert back to English when he loses?
Chest Rockwell
Ahh.. you're back Duane! I saw this post yesterday and thought of you.

Cool! How did you know I was a V fan? Used to love watching V. Not seen the new series, but liked the original.
Do you want to get me one for my birthday mate? wink.gif

Hang on, Duane, you're on Team Cena? But that's going with the masses. You're not even allowed to be on Team Rock. You should be on Team Referee or Team Timekeeper.
