Civics test to become an American citizen

with 6 comments

Here’s the test. I got them all correct. How about you? (Full disclosure: I’m a citizen raised in the US, so I have an unfair advantage.)

  1. Well, I missed the one about the name of the immigration form…

  2. Michael, it’s not as easy as it looks. I took the real test about 5 years ago. These online practice tests are misleading. In reality you have to know the correct answer, not just pick the right one out of four options. You don’t get any options. Either you know or you don’t! I missed one and passed. Now I’m one of us! 🙂

  3. They might know their civics, but their math is lacking. I missed one of twenty and the site said I got a 90%….

  4. I’m a natural born citizen, too, and I got two wrong. I missed the one about the amendment not addressing voting rights and the one about the original 13 states. (Damn that NH!)

  5. I lucked out on the name of the form—“petition,” though, didn’t sound right.

  6. Uh oh, it’s not multiple-choice IRL?! I’m screwed.
