If there has to be a test it should be much easier.I agree with the person who said if you have lived here 20yrs you should not have to take one at all as long as you came here legally.I think if you have lived in Australia that long you have more than proved your allegation to the way of life,the laws and the constitution.

I agree, but also some other questions could be included as optional to help the gov assess just how many people have immersed themselves into the Australian lifestyle and culture. Just easy things like foods, music, sports and public holidays for different states.

These questions are ridiculous. Questions should be about rights and responsibilities, not high government and law functions or history and geography. I was schooled all my life in Australia, and I don't know half the history or geography answers, and the law/govt questions are, at best, obscure. These questions have no place in deciding if someone is fit to be a citizen. Furthermore, the question 'Encouraging others to break the law' has an incorrect answer - it is not something we CANNOT do, but something we SHOULD not do (or just 'is illegal'). If Australians CANNOT break the law, our prisons would be empty.

High government is not really needed, but some history is and so is geography. Rights and responsibilities are a must for the test. But some fun optional questions about Australian foods, sports, music and cultural icons and events would also be good so the government can work out how well people are adapting to the Australian culture and lifestyle.

Answering all questions correctly does not mean that the applicant demonstrates Australian values. You can be a great citizen even if you don't know the answers to many of the questions in the database. The test requires high proficciency in English and is unfair to migrants who don't have this level of competency. I agree that there are facts and areas that every Australian citizen should know - the test should focus on just these areas. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to comment. Kind Regards Zeina

Sam you need to shut up. People will come here and love it. Australians are just as guilty of wasting tax payer money as anyone, such as your average dole bludger. The fruits of our labors? you act like people fall off the boat and just do nothing while there here, next time you fill up at a 24 hour petrol station think about the Indian guy thats been working a 15 hour shift there trying to support his family, and you tell me they don't have just as much right as anyone else to call Australia home.

Probably the test should first be tried on Australians to see how many get through it. The results will be amazing and we all know that, don't we ! Migrants who work hard, pay their taxes, abide as good inhabitants and contribute to the society in some form or the other should be spared of this embarrasement of undertaking a Test to "understand" the country better. But do they even have a choice?

I'm a part of it. some questions I found a bit unimportant eg if a surname has the right spelling or not. That should not be a reason for getting a answer right or wrong,and to understand the system of the government was not easy for me to understand and it is still not easy. Apart from that very interesting.

I believe it is unfair that people are expected to sit a test. There are people who have been living in Australia their whol life and don't know the answers to most of hose questions. How can we expect someone who is new to the country to confidently answer these questions. It just puts added pressure on our hectic lives.

The citizenship test is in my opinion meaningless, as whether or not someone can answer these questions, does not indicate the value and skills a person has to offer a nation. I believe that if a person wishes to contribute to society in what ever way they can, should be allowed, if the person is healthy and does not have a criminal history. It provides other Australians an opportunity to experience different cultures without leaving the haven of the country which should be celebrated. I am a 'white' Anglo Celtic woman, who grew up in Australia, yet i am sure if I took this test i would likely fail. Growing the population means growing the economy.

The term citizen should be for all those who have lived in Australia and are still currently living in it, no matter what colour they are or what religion they preach or their background. My wife is Australian citizen who is bought up here in Australia and there are a lot of questions she doesn't know. What I want to say is that people who were born in Australia or were given it as children (due to their parents migrating to Australia when they were young) donĂ¢?EUR?(TM)t know the answers to many of the questions in the test, so why should we ask these questions to other people who choose to be Australian, after leaving their country and coming to Australia. I think these people should get the citizenship without a test, because in reality they have already shown their loyalty and love to Australia. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to speak my mind.

Why would the Australian-born citizens be tested? Why is it so hard to understand that if you WANT something, you should PROVE yourself worthy of it; want a cookie? show the money! want vacations? work a year! want a prestigious passport ensuring a lifetime of economic certainty and welfare?? PASS THE FUCKING TEST!!

You just dug yourself in your own hole for asking why would the Australian-born citizen be tested. Sasha already explained to you that new australians should know as much about Australia as the Australian-born citizens, but no one tests them. And by you saying that we should understand that if you want something, you should prove yourself worthy of it. If you are an Australian-born citizen, what have you done to prove yourself worthy of it? Shouldn't you also pass the fucking test?????

Ummmmm Mark I hate to state the obvious, but I wouldn't have thought there was a country in the world that has its native born people pass a test - you get some things automatically by birthright. I think most people think that if a country is offering something as valuable as citizenship that a small test is a small price to pay ?EUR"it?EUR(TM)s about respecting the country which is giving something so valuable. Check how difficult it is to get citizenship in most countries for foreign born people - often it's not an option at all. I believe in having a test - it's just a question of whether this test could be improved so it?EUR(TM)s more relevant.

The test is discriminating because 9 out of 10 Australians could not get 15 of these questions right. The fee for sitting the test is outrageous.It would not be tolerated if Australians had to go through this process to get a passport. Where is the fair go ethic in all of this discriminatory test?

Kyle U.S. flag [reply]
User's votes: 2    
What exactly is discriminating about this test? No country equates citizens and foreigners. That's the whole idea of citizenship. If you want to become citizen, you have to comply with a number of conditions. The test is one of them. So who's being "discriminated"? Do you feel discriminated when you pass your drivers licensing test?

I think this test is a terrible idea.... If you asked those that are born in Australia I highly doubt that most 'Australians' would know the answers that are placed into this test (of course I can only go off the sample questions provided) I'm fortunate in the respect that I always wanted to do well scholastically and I was born in Australia... but those that are not as versed in this would definately struggle. Just a horrible hassle for those members in society that are productive and do what they can for this country. My mother works hard doing two jobs, running a family amoungst everything else. She abides by our laws and speaks english perfectly... I have no doubt that she's 'Australian' and think it's a massive waste of her hard earnt dollars to sit this test....should be scrapped

I agree with DEN 100PER CENT.... CLIVE FOX you need to get a reality check. Not even your own countrymen know what their own ,MORALS, IDEALS OR ASPIRATIONS are as a country. I have been here for 30years and I would be the biggest supporter for this country. I will not have anyone knock AUSTRALIA. It has been very good for my family and I would be the first to admit that if we had not moved here, my family would not have all the things that we have now so people like me do not need people like you telling me about IDEALS, MORALS OR ASPIRATIONS ESPECIALLY WHEN ALOT OF YOUR OWN COUNTRYMEN DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT THE HELL THAT IS. The day I arrived here, I started work which was CHRISTMAS DAY . My husband and I both worked 2 jobs each to get what we wanted and have never looked back. We enjoy what this country has to offer and now we look at the generation coming through. What a nightmare. DRUGS, DOLE, DRUNKS, etc, so I think you should take your preaching to them and lecture those people on MORALS, IDEALS AND ASPIRATIONS before you start writing re: things about other citizens of other countries....

I am an australian citizen working as a policy adviser in a australian government central agency, and yet i only barely passed the free test (scored about 12/20). I don't think the test is relevant. The test should be targeted at assessing whether te applicants identify with australian culture, society and conomy and their ability to assimilate easily into Australian day-to-day living. Having knowledge of historical/physical facts of the country or even about legislative issues does not mean an individual would be able to settle in with a reasonable standard of living and happiness.

I really don't think that people should regard the Australian Citizenship test as 'moronic' and a 'disgrace'. The test was created so that people from other countries migrating to Australia could find out about our history and when they passed, they would be able to say ' I'm an Aussie'. You, Monroe, may think that I'm stupid in saying this and that I'm sticking up for the person that created the test, but in fact I don't think that all the questions in the test should be about the government, the gold rush and the referendum. I think that thats not really what we Australians are about. We're about freedom and aussie spirit, BBQ's and beaches, footy and cricket. Migrants shouldn't be obliged to know about constitutions, referendums and gold rushes. It all seems awfully un-australian to me. The questions should change, but we shouldn't scrap the test.

I think the first part of the test should be about Australian Laws and a bit of Australian background. But i think it should also consider having basic test on English language, eg. short essay why they wanna become an Australian Citizen, What made them decide to become an Australian Citizen, what did they like about Australia etc.. So that we know that they will be able to socialize and communicate with other Australian, without any problem of understanding each other. I am a Filipino young lady who have gone to different shops, restaurant, etc.. and a large amount of these shops do not understand or speak English which leads to a misunderstanding.

I was born here, I am a patriot, the whole point of Australia is to be multicultural, we hardly have a history, a history many of us aren't proud of. I was born in Australia which automatically made me a citizen but was I drilled with ridiculus questions of our nations origins? no. This test and the information that the people need to learn to become "Australian" is very un-australian, saying that just because you don't know certain things about us mean you can't join us, we are a nation built from other nations yet we are rejecting them.

I'm not sure that questions on your country's history are ridiculous - and presumably you were actually asked these or similar when you went to school! I'm not sure why wanting new citizens to know some of the history that made Australia the multi-cultural country it is, is 'un-Australian".

It is not meant to ensure that somebody is loyal. It is meant to keep people who refuse to assimilate (by not speaking English, for example), OUT of Australian citizenship. Too many people are now talking about how they have right to this and that. They come to a foreign country and pretend to speak their language and so on. Nobody should be given an Australian passport if they can't answer a couple of very simple questions in English, and about the country that have them everything they wanted.

I don't think it is the Citizenship test that determines a good Australian citizen. it was already hard enough to get the permanent residency in Australia. I think I have been already tested as a moral Citizen of Australia when I tried to get the visa. Practically, it takes people to get the citizenship for decades and those who have been in Australia over that many years would already have learned and experienced about Australia and its culture. Also, it is not easy for the people to go to the test locations as they have to sit on a test in a certain place. I think the test should be able to be done in, for example, the local Service Tasmania or any Medicare centres. I am in Ulverstone and it is very hard for me take the test regularly as I have to travel very far. And that affects my work shift too.

Agree with you when it comes to the PR, you really do have to show everything about yourself. I have been here for 8 years now and I am about to take the test.

People who have no knowledge of english before they arrived in Australia. they certainly would feel difficult to do the test even if they have done their 400 hr english training. My recommendation is to simplify questions (ways of questioning). Don't use too many sophisticated vocabularies. Thanks very much.

Australia is so becoming a republic and leaving the commonwealth, the queen is just a public figure now. And you ideals are moronic, only the best of people are good enough from australia? Thats why this country was founded on convicts? Where Brtain decided to send criminals? Yes, I can see the connection.. the best of Criminals are good enough for Australia?

Whatever happened then, happened then. Now the situation has changed. We don't take any more convicts, do we? And we can set standards for what kind of people we want. We are already doing it by having an skilled immigration program that's quite tough, so it's not easy to get in. Testing is perfectly logical. We want NEW people to be BETTER, even BETTER than ourselves: this is WHY the test is so "hard", and this is why the argument "even Australians can't answer these questions' is totally idiotic. It's the WHOLE IDEA!!!

Why did this test happening now and not before. People had personal problems in their country, thats why they came here. People who came here does not know english,; so which one do they have to learn, english or the test.

It's better to have interview instead of a test.
