The new Dutch exam

The new test to be done by prospective immigrants to Holland consists of 30 questions out of a bank of 100. From what I understand, all the questions appear in a book that the candidate purchases ahead of time, along with a video. The exam itself is an oral exam, conducted in Dutch. You can try your hand at the exam in written form online as a multiple choice test, and look up the answers as well (my score was 8.8).

I found it interesting that the exam is directed very clearly towards "family reunification" immigrants. There are quite a few questions that relate to 'your partner' as if it's obvious that there would be one. Of course, it is also directed at people coming from lands where there is no democracy and no equal rights.
