The current Australian citizenship test will soon be replaced by a tougher test that seeks to assess the applicant's English language proficiency and whether they have integrated into the Australian way of life.

Every year, thousands of immigrants take Australia's computer-based citizenship test.

The Australian government says the test ensures applicants have a basic knowledge of the English language, an adequate knowledge of Australia and of the responsibilities and privileges of citizenship and an understanding of the nature of their application.

The test asks questions about Australia’s political system and values, and is a requirement for most people who apply for citizenship in Australia.

Many are exempt from sitting the test, including people younger than 18 and older than 60 years of age and people who have impaired vision or hearing.

How well you think you know Australia's political system and Australian values?

Put yourself to the test - you need to answer 15 questions correctly (75 per cent) to pass the test.
