Life in the UK Test

Introduction

The majority of migrants wishing to live in the UK permanently must pass the "Life in the UK" test which is based on the Home Office TSO (The Stationery Office) publication "Life in the United Kingdom: A Guide for New Residents". Many consider the text daunting to read with its long paragraphs and lack of illustrations.

The 220 Soft course, with its split paragraphs and illustrations, makes the text far easier to digest. In addition we have added Practice Tests that are simulations of the real test.

We believe that this makes the 220 Soft "Life in Britain" course a far more thorough and enjoyable preparation for the "Life in the UK" test than any other currently available method.
