US citizenship Test Change (effective on Dec 1, 2020)

USCIS Revised the Naturalization Civics Test

Back in July 2019, USCIS announced its plan to revise the civics test. On last Friday (November 13, 2020), USCIS posted an announcement that applicants who apply for naturalization on or after December 1, 2020 will take the new version of the test.

The passing score (60%) remains the same. Applicants must answer 12 questions correctly, out of 20 in order to pass. In contrast, applicants who are 65 years old or older and have at least 20 years of lawful permanent resident status must answer 6 questions correctly, out of 10 to pass.

“The 2020 Version of the Civics Test” could be found on USCIS website. This material increases the number of questions to 128. Applicants who apply for naturalization on or after December 1, 2020 should study the updated version material.
