The citizenship test, taken by foreigners who want to become British, is getting some big changes.

The 45-minute exam will focus on British culture and history, instead of questions based on day-to-day skills, like catching a train.

The government said it wants to encourage immigrants to get more involved in British life.

But one group, the Migrants' Rights Network, said the new test was more like a public school entrance exam.

The new 'Life in the UK' test will be introduced in March. It was first launched in 2005.

Anyone taking it needs to get 75% to pass. There is a handbook available to study from.
