File Your N-400 Now and Avoid Changes to Civics Test which take effect on 12/01/2020Posted on Thursday, November 19, 2020
The USCIS has announced changes to the Civics portion of the naturalization test. Applicants who file before December 1, 2020 will take the current version (the “2008 version”). Those who file on or after that date will take the test put in place by the Trump Administration, the “2020 version.”
The announced differences are as follows:
- In the 2008 Version, the USCIS officer will ask applicants up to 10 questions from a list of 100 on the civics test. You must answer 6 questions correctly to pass.
- In the 2020 Version, the officer will ask 20 questions from a list of 128 on the civics test. Of the 20 asked, you must answer 12 correctly to pass.
The passing grade is the same (60%) for both versions; but the amount of material to study is greater for the 2020 version. Furthermore, many of the existing questions have been revised and will now require longer or more thorough answers.
