Do I Have to Take a Test Before Becoming a U.S. Citizen?

You’d like to become a U.S. citizen, but you’re concerned about the requirements. For instance, are you going to have to take a test? If so, is the test hard? By researching the tests you’ll have to take, you can be prepared and more likely to gain U.S. citizenship.

Do I Have to Take a U.S. Citizenship Test? 

Yes, you will have to take one two-part test as part of your naturalization process. The first part of the test will be an English test to see if you can speak, read, and write in English. The second part of the test is a civics test, which will evaluate what you know about the U.S. government and U.S. history. Typically, you will take the test the same day as your citizenship interview. You’ll get two chances to take the test. 

What’s on the English Test? 

The English test has three parts: speaking, writing, and reading. Keep in mind that your English does not have to be perfect. You just have to show that you have a basic comprehension of the language through a series of tests. 

What’s on the Civics Test?

You will have to answer at least six out of 10 civics questions correctly in order to pass. There are 100 questions to study; you will be randomly asked six of them during your application process.
