When it comes time for an individual to take the naturalization test in order to become an official United States citizen, it is very important that they prepare for the exam. Luckily, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services has provided those who are preparing with a number of resources that they can use to study.
How is the test set up?
There are several parts to the naturalization test. You will need to prove your ability to read, write, and speak English. You will also have to answer 10 questions about the history and the government of the United States, known as civics. There are 100 possible questions that the officer has to choose from, but you will only need to know the answers to 10. If you can answer 6 of those 10 correctly, you will pass the civics part of the exam.
What kinds of questions do they ask?
There are several types of categories of questions that will be asked. They can cover American History, including anything from Colonial times through today’s government. They can cover information about the geography of the United States, national holidays, the rights and responsibilities of a Citizen, information about the Declaration of Independence and Constitution, and more.
Individuals who are above the age of 65 and have been a legal permanent resident of the United States for at least 20 years, you may only have to study the answers to certain questions.
