Citizenship test hits the news....

I read this in the Australian news this morning.....
Citizenship test failures prompts review
From: AAP
January 02, 2008

THE Federal Government will review the operation of the citizenship test after figures showed a fifth of applicants failed to achieve the 60 per cent mark required to become Australian.

Since it was introduced in October last year, 10,636 people have sat the citizenship test across Australia and 2311 have failed it, Fairfax newspapers reported today.

The 20-question multiple choice quiz tests participants on Australian history and values, and determines whether they have adequate English proficiency.

It makes me glad to have passed my test and has Byron "100%" Baynham gloating once again!
