From 2nd April 2007, if you are applying for settlement in the United Kingdom you will need to demonstrate Knowledge of Life and Language in the UK (KOL), in addition to meeting the usual requirements for settlement. and i am english...i read this stuff on the web as i want to get married to my romanian girlfriend when we come back so i spent a lot of time so far researching the legislation. the test its self is well how can i say,,,written by a bunch of jerks. even i cant answer some of the questions and i am an "educated english person" a lot of the questions are written by university students and they expect the average person to know the answer but in truth if all the uk population were to take the test my guess is over 70% would fail it -puke- sad to say but true enough...try a pub quiz you have more chance of winning...i would be curious to see the full test that someone has taken and try to answer all the questions in full..anyone got a copy they are willing to post for me to answer? no interest for me but i dont like the bureaucracy in the uk,thats why i left in the first place.
