Australia's new citizenship test: Would you pass?
 
Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said changes to the Australian citizenship test were part of a push for mutual respect and to discourage violence against women.
 
“What we’re doing is strengthening our multi-cultural society and strengthening the commitment to Australian values," he said.
 
So would you pass Australia’s new citizenship test?
 
Examples questions as provided to News Corp include:
 
  • Under what circumstances is it appropriate to prohibit girls from education?
  • Does Australia’s principle of freedom of religion mean that it is permissible to force children to marry?
  • In Australia’s multicultural society, under which circumstances is it permissible to cut female genitals?
  • While it is illegal to use violence in public, under what circumstances can you strike your spouse in the privacy of your own home?
 
Other proposals include four years of residency and fluent English speaking skills.
 
Applicants will also have only three chances to pass.
 
Citizenship test guidelines
 
  • Applicants caught cheating will automatically fail.
  • Will have to be permanent residents for four years before seeking citizenship. Under the current test applicants have to wait 12 months.
  • Must demonstrate fluent English language skills. This will be exempt for people with enduring incapacity or aged under 16.
  • There will be tougher criminal history checks including involvement in gang activity and domestic violence.
  • Wording of the citizenship test will change.
  • The test will feature questions testing the applicant's understanding of Australia's shared values.
  • Must show a contribution to the community and show evidence or employment, membership to community organisations and school enrolment for all eligible children.

 

A discussion paper on proposed questions and changes will be available to the public at a later date.
