Medborgerskabsprøven - Active citizen exam

Medborgerskabsprøven is a test about Danish democracy, everyday life in Denmark, Danish culture and Danish history.

Medborgerskabsprøven is a test about Danish democracy, everyday life in Denmark, Danish culture and Danish history. If you want a permanent residence permit in Denmark, you are usually required to pass Medborgerskabsprøven.  It takes place twice a year (summer and winter).

Medborgerskabsprøven consists of 25 written questions. You get 30 minutes to answer all 25 questions.

The questions are multiple-choice. That means that for every question, you get several options to choose between. Select the answer that you think is correct.

Each question only has one correct answer, so you can only select one option.

In order to pass the test, you must answer at least 20 out of the 25 questions correctly.
