The Spoof Scottish Citizenship Test

Updated on September 18, 2014

UK Citizenship Test

Recently the British Government unveiled a new citizenship examination for people from outside the UK who want to come and live permanently in the country.

The test consists of 10 Questions, which are so easy to answer that you would think failure was really not an option.

In 2014 the people of Scotland go to the ballot box to vote on whether they would like to break free from the United Kingdom and become an Independent country or remain as part of the Union.

Depending on the result of this vote, the people of Scotland may need to come up with a citizenship test of their own.

Below you will find my version of how this test could look and the answers.

Scottish Citizenship Test Results

The pass mark would be based on the same criteria as the British Citezenship test and immigrants would be allowed through the gates into Scotland if they scored 70% or more.

Just like the British test Scotlands test is very difficult to fail.

good luck to all of those people who need to get away from their country and settle in the UK.

      Damn, I got number 5 and 10 wrong. Still 80%, not bad for a weegie. My mum always told me that a haggis is a wee furry creature roaming the hills. I even had the stuffed toy! Plus, I was really hoping that the history books creditted A. Hole with the discovery of penicillin.

      Loved your Scottish Citizenship test, Jimmy.

      The question I had in the years I lived in Scotland was "Why won't the English accept Scottish pounds?"

      I'd be given Bank of England pounds from ATMs in Scotland and the Scots would graciously accept them, but as soon as I tried to spend pounds from the Bank of Scotland or the Clydesdale Bank at any corner store in England, they refused to take them. I could never understand that. :(

      Brilliant hub! Can't imagine what non-Brits make of the Scots or the UK test. This was fun. I love Scotland and know quite a few Scots who all have a great sense of humour. Voted up, interesting and funny.

      Hi Jimmy. Thanks, a great tongue in cheek test for the non Scot, I enjoyed it. I do hope though that we all stay together in the future.

      Voted up and all.

      I loved this Hub and these tests... as an old Canadian transposed to the USA... I thought I'd do better on the English test. I passed them both quite well, but equally. Voted up and Sharing.

      Finding hagis in your bagpipes would be a very bad thing! I could pass this test, can I have dual citizenship with England, to make it easier when crossing the border?

      Well, I passed the Scottish test, but only got 60% on the British one. I wonder how many Americans can pass the American test! I might just do a hub on that!

      Amusing diversion for the morning. Thanks!
