I am not sure if this is the best place to post this but I would like to share my experience of applying for the British citizenship and I would like to know what the experience of other people becoming a British national is.

I lived in the UK for 12 years and decided to apply for the British citizenship to make things easier for me. Since I study a degree in the UK I did not have to prove my knowledge of English, which is required even if your first language is English. Then I prepared for the Life in the UK Test, a exam about the uk, with historical facts, a bit of politics, sports, arts, etc. There is a book for this. I read the book a few times and also practice online. There are a number of sites where you can practice for free. A friend recommended http://www.britishcitizenshiptests.co.uk. I practiced there and in a couple of other webs and I booked my exam. The exam was quite easy, more than I expected as I had heard some people fail. I submitted the exam certificate and all the documentation required more than 5 months ago and I am still waiting to hear back from a response. I was told that after you received the approval of your application you have to wait about another month until you have your citizenship ceremony. Any experiences from other people?
