If you were asked to retake the driver’s exam, or the exam that that got you accredited in your profession, or the exams that got you into your university, could you past it today? These questions crossed my mind as I read the article Denmark’s New Citizenship Test Stumps Even Natives. Denmark’s goal of this exam is to make it harder for immigrants to become Danish. Danish have prided themselves on being the world’s happiest place to live. After reading this article I looked up the happiest place to live. Denmark has fallen to third on the list. I wonder if this has anything to do with the new 40 question citizenship test that stumps even natives despite them being giving free preparatory material that covered the test continents and puts them under pressure to get 80% correct. They are faced with questions like “Which Danish restaurant gained a third Michelin star in February 2016?” “In what constellation did the 16th century Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe discover a new star?”. My question: how does knowing these answers make you a better citizen?
