The Government has unveiled changes to the test taken by foreign nationals who wish to become UK citizens to place greater focus on the \"values and principles at the heart of being British\".
The revised Life in the UK test, set to be introduced in March, will cover events and people "who have contributed to making Britain great", the Home Office said.
Immigrants will be quizzed on a range of topics, including sport, music and key historical facts, as part of the overhaul designed to focus less on the practicalities of daily living in Britain and more on the nation's culture and past.
