Tackling the Naturalization Test

Immigrants who are going through the process of naturalization will be required to pass the naturalization test, which is used to determine incoming citizen's ability to read, write and speak basic English, as well as gage their knowledge of basic U.S. history and government.

According to The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), immigrants must undergo several steps before they can take the test – they must submit the N-400 form, application for naturalization and have their fingerprints taken at the USCIS facility. Once these have all been processed, immigrants will attend an interview during which they must provide information about their background, and then take the English and civics test.

Before taking the test, some may want to investigate the study materials provided by the DHS. Improving literacy skills will not only increase one's chance of passing the test, but will also help immigrants find a job when the arrive in the U.S. It is likely that those with good speaking skills will be able to obtain a higher-paying job, meaning they will be able to send a remittance to family living abroad.

The interview is an opportunity for immigrants to demonstrate their ability to speak English. During the test, incoming citizens will also have to read and write three sentences in English to establish their literacy skills.

The last portion of the test consists of 10 questions about civics, six of which much be answered correctly. There is a second opportunity to take the test should the applicant not receive a passing mark.

Those who don't pass the English test on their first try will be given another opportunity to take the test between 60 and 90 days after the initial interview, according to the DHS.

Some people may qualify for a waiver for this test. People over the age of 50 at the time of filing for naturalization, who have had a green card in the U.S. for 20 years are exempt from the English Language Requirement, but must still take the civics portion of he quiz.

Additionally, persons who have a medical disability that prevents them from taking the test may fill out a Medical Certification for Disability Exceptions, also known as Form N-648. Those form must be filled out by a licensed medical or osteopathic doctor or licensed clinical psychologist.

According to National Public Radio, over 400,000 immigrants take the test to become U.S. citizens each year.
