The U.S. citizenship test

One of the most intimidating aspects of applying for citizenship is the test requirement. More specifically, all applicants for U.S. citizenship must be interviewed to test their ability to read, write and speak in English, in addition to being given a civics test. While, the test may seem nerve-racking, the more you learn about the test, the less nervous you will be. KahBo Dye-Chiew provides these exam study tips.
Let’s start by examining what to expect during the test and the interview. The interview will be conducted at a local U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services office. The USCIS will test your ability to read, write and speak English by asking you to read 3 sentences in English and to write up to 3 dictated sentences in English. There will also be an oral civics exam of up to 10 questions. You need to answer at least 6 questions correctly. These questions will test your knowledge of U.S. government and history. Some examples of the civics questions are:

Sample immigration exam questions

  • In what month do we vote for the President of the United States? (November)
  • What are the first 10 amendments to the U.S. Constitution called? (Bill of Rights)
  • How many amendments does the Constitution have? (27)
  • What is the supreme law of the United States? (The Constitution)

If you fail the test, you can retake the test within 60-90 days. Unfortunately, if you fail the retest, your application for citizenship will be denied.
