The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) office will administer this test to all permanent residents (Green Card holders) applying for citizenship. Submitting all the required USCIS forms for the successful completion of this process is imperative.

Once the citizenship application (Form N-400) is processed, applicants will be notified of the date scheduled for them to attend a naturalization interview. The interview will be conducted at the local USCIS office nearest to the applicant’s location. At the USCIS interview, applicants should be prepared to answer questions regarding the N-400 citizenship application filed, as well as background questions. English language and civics sections will be part of the US citizenship test. Applicants are advised to review the history of the USA; citizenship can depend on it.

The US citizenship test includes 100 civics questions. Generally, applicants will be asked up to 10 questions from a list of 100 civics questions. In order to successfully pass the exam it will be necessary to answer at least six of ten random questions correctly.

The English language portion of the test has three parts: reading, writing, and speaking. An individual’s ability to speak Basic English will be determined by the USCIS officer conducting the interview. Applicants will be required to read aloud one of three sentences correctly for the reading portion of the exam. Applicants will be required to write one out of three sentences correctly as well.
