US naturalization test civics 2020

In order to become a US Citizen, you will be required to pass a Naturalization Test. The naturalization test has two parts, English and Civics. All applicants for naturalization filed on or after December 1st will be required to take the new version of the civics test.

2020 Civics Test Version

Previously the civics portion of the naturalization test had 10 questions from the list of 100 civics test questions. The 2020 version of the civics test is an oral test, and the USCIS officer will ask 20 questions from the list of 128 civics test questions. You must answer 12 of the 20 questions correctly to pass the civic portion of the naturalization test.

This does mean that the civics portion of the naturalization test will be a bit more difficult than previous versions. Before taking the US citizenship test be sure to study, practice, and have your immigration lawyer prepare you.

I got my US L1 Visa through them, pretty smooth process. We weren’t sure they’d take our case as we had some issues with retrieving some documents, but they worked with us on getting everything we needed. Recommend.

Allow me to express that our case proved to be more complex than initially anticipated. However, Aisha and Reena provided unwavering support throughout the entire process. At each juncture, they offered clear guidance on necessary actions, guiding us through the intricacies we couldn’t navigate independently. While the procedure proved more intricate than expected, our legal team maintained close communication, ensuring we were well-informed and adequately prepared. Confronted with challenges, they approached them with a positive attitude, instilling confidence through their professionalism and competence. I wholeheartedly recommend their services. While moments of stress were inevitable, their assurance and ability to convey that confidence were instrumental. Reflecting on the experience, I am certain we would not have succeeded without their assistance, or at the very least, the journey would have been significantly prolonged.
