U.S. Citizenship Test: The Civics Section

Home » US Citizenship Test: The Civics Section

As an immigrant to the United States, you may know the difference between a naturalized citizen versus a green card. You may even know about immigration bond requirements and bond insurance services, but do you know who was the first president of the United States? How about how many members make up the House of Representatives of the United States? If you do not, it is okay for now, but if you are planning on taking the US citizenship test, you should learn. (The answers are George Washington and 435, by the way.)

What to Expect for the Civics Section

As part of the US naturalization test, applicants are required to take a US civics test. This civics portion will include questions about the government, history, and current politics of the United States.

While the US citizenship civics test is only 10 questions long, these questions are pooled from 100 possible questions that you can find on the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) website. Unfortunately, because of this setup, you will want to study all 100 questions and answers.

During the test, a USCIS officer will ask you 10 questions from their list, and you are expected to give a verbal answer. The USCIS will not give you choices to choose from, so you are expected to recall the answer on your own. The test is conducted in English, and only certain applicants are exempt from the English requirement. The test may also include questions regarding politics in American, so you need to make sure that you know who is currently in office at the time of your test, since these answers can change.

What If I Fail the US Civics Test?

Having to take and pass the US Citizenship test is just one of the many challenges that immigrants face when wanting to become a citizen of the United States. In order to pass US citizenship civics test, the applicant must correctly answer 6 out of the 10 questions correctly. Luckily the US citizenship civics test is one test that applicants can retake is they fail the first time; however, you need to retake the test 60 to 90 days after your first attempt.

US immigration bonds were absolutely the best they were super professional. When I was down and out when my husband was detained by immigration they were very caring , knowledgeable, and patient. I called them a thousand times and they were very empathic and helpful everytime I called. they reassures me that everything would be fine, and that they would help me my husband, and my children be reunited again. They did everything they could to get me a same day release. They exceeded my expectations. I would not recommend any company other than US immigration bonds. Us immigration bonds, under promises and over fulfills. They were a true blessing ! Thank you so much again.read more

Jeremy Wolf and his agency have been a terrific resource for me as I delve into this foreign world of bonding a friend out of jail so he and his wife can work on his case on the "outside." Jeremy has been unfailingly polite and informative and his video regarding how to complete the necessary forms was a valuable tool too. The entire process was quick and relatively easy. I especially appreciated not having to deal with a jaded, impatient, figure--it-out-yourself kind of person when I was treading in really unfamiliar territory. My questions were always answered quickly and efficiently.I highly recommend this company in your time of need for quick, efficient and professional service with no attitude or delay.read more

Jeremy Wolf, is compassionate and understanding. He has been there and done it with his own family, and together with his wife they dedicate their time and energy into helping other families come together. I know this because my husband was taken by ICE and his bond was set much higher than I could have imagined, having in my hands at any given time. ... With Jeremy, his wife and the rest of the team we were able to piece together the required 80% and set up a affordable and convient payment plan. It was a grueling process, at times I felt like I was going to loose all my hair, as I ran around selling homemade tamales, and had various other fund raisers going on, along with my husband being detained, I lost my home, my dog and my daughter and I pushed forward with the help and support of Jeremy and his team, if It wasn't for there hours of help and dedication, to put a previous bond for my nephew into action to help my husband, we wouldn't have been able to have him home for the Holidays. ... To Jeremy, Veronica, and Amber, who I spoke with often, and the other parts of the team who I was unable to catch their names, I THANK YOU, FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART!read more
