They changed the rules just after we landed so that you have to live here for 4 years before you can apply to become a citizen but we still only have to do two !
Before you can apply you have to sit a multiple choice test in Perth so Paul and I trundled off last Monday after having revised for weeks - this is no easy test and, if it wasn't multiple choice I wouldn't stand a chance. In fact when they tested it on the Aussies they failed !! Luckily there is a low pass rate too of 60%.
I passed with 100% and Paul got 90%. Paul started to tell me that he'd had harder questions but I had the same ones as he got wrong so that didn't wash ! Still, we both passed which is the main thing as Paul had to take a day off and now just have to wait until 30th August before we can apply for our citizenship.
