There was a story in the papers a few weeks ago about a Thai lady who had failed the Test (can't remember the details now, sorry). If you are very close to the expiry date of your settlement visa, you can apply for Further Leave to Remain in the UK in order to pass the Test - but at a cost of £445. Quite expensive to keep failing...

You can take a test here, and get the answers. The pass rate is 75%. Some Brits have failed it
When I have time I might have a go.
