Resolving Immigration ProblemsIn An Honest & Responsible Manner

Acing the USCIS naturalization test

We all remember the trials and tribulations of taking tests in school. For those who want to become U.S. citizens, another big test looms: the naturalization test.

Citizenship applicants are asked up 10 questions from a list of 100 civics questions. In order to pass the civics test, you must answer at least six of the 10 correctly, according to U.S. Citizenship and immigrantion Services (USCIS).

Fortunately, USCIS provides a variety of study tools to help people get ready for what is certainly an important part of becoming a citizen. Note: most applicants must take and pass the test in English, but some applicants (because of age or extended presence as a permanent resident) are exempt from the requirement and are allowed to take the test in their choice of language.

So what kinds of questions are you likely to see on the test? Let’s take a look at a sample of questions (and their correct answers).

  • What is the supreme law of the land? Answer: the Constitution.
  • What do we call the first ten amendments to the Constitution? Answer: the Bill of Rights.
  • What are the two parts of the U.S. Congress? Answer: the Senate and House of Representatives.
  • What are the two major political parties in the United States? Answer: Democratic and Republican.
  • Who lived in America before the Europeans arrived? Answer: Native Americans or American Indians (either answer is acceptable).
  • Name one state that borders Mexico. Answer: California, New Mexico, Arizona and Texas.

You can find more test questions and answers, as well as study aids, at the USCIS site.

You can find answers to questions about the legal process of naturalization by speaking with an experienced San Diego immigrantion attorney. Contact the Law Offices of Jan Joseph Bejar for more information.
