Do you know Spain well enough to become a Spanish citizen? Put your general knowledge of Spain to the test and find out if you would qualify in 2022.


In order to qualify for Spanish nationality, you must meet certain conditions as well as passing a language test and a citizenship test set by the Cervantes Institute.

The CCSE test consists of 25 multiple choice questions which must be answered within a set time limit of 45 minutes to test your knowledge of Spain’s Constitution, its society and its cultural heritage.


Fifteen of the questions are designed to test your knowledge of Spain’s government, legislation and rights of the citizen while the remaining ten are concerned with Spanish culture, history and society.

There are 300 questions and each year the exam board chooses 25 of these for the test. Twenty-five of the questions are also renewed each year, so it's important to know the correct set of questions for the year you'll be taking the exam. 


There are questions that have a multiple-choice option between three answers and others that must be answered with a true or false.

For question 4, the English and Spanish versions of the question have different answers - and the quiz expects you answer the English version.
