Applicants for naturalization to the U.S. must pass a civics test with a 60% passage rate. In order to help applicants prepare for this test and to support English language learning, the USCIS is now offering civics test and answers for the naturalization test in seven languages. These languages include: English, Arabic, Chinese, Korean, Spanish, Tagalog, and Vietnamese.
There are typically 100 civics questions on the naturalization exam, which covers key elements in both U.S. history and government. During a naturalization interview, applicants are asked up to 10 questions, randomly, from the list of 100. The test is typically administered in English. If the applicant answers 6 out of 10 questions correctly, they will pass the civics test.
Certain applicants, due to age and length of time as a permanent resident, are exempt from the English requirements for the civics test and may opt to have the test administered in the language of their choice.
