Citizenship Interview Study Materials: How To Prepare For The 100 Question Civics Test
Part of the U.S. citizenship process includes a test during your interview which will include questions about U.S. history and government.
The 100 civics (history and government) questions is an oral test and the USCIS Officer will ask the applicant up to 10 of the 100 civics questions. An applicant must answer 6 out of 10 questions correctly to pass the civics portion of the naturalization test.
Hint: Brush up on the U.S. national anthem as you will be signing it at the naturalization.
Will The USCIS Ask Questions That Are Not On The List?
The great news is that you don’t have to worry about a curve ball question. The USCIS is not trying to trick you or ask you something that is not relevant.
How Do I Know If I Passed The Civics Test and How Difficult Is It?
I recommend that you begin studying as soon as you arrive in the United States and continue to learn until your citizenship interview.
