DHS Scraps Longer Citizenship Test

USCIS announced on February 22, 2021, that it is reverting to the 2008 version of the naturalization civics test beginning March 1, 2021.

The 2020 version of the civics test was short lived. Developed under the Trump Administration, USCIS implemented the revised civics test for those who filed their naturalization applications after December 1, 2020. The revised version of the test was longer and required applicants to answer more questions. While the 2008 version of the test required applicants to answer 6 out of 10 questions correctly, out of a pool of 100 possible questions, the revised test required applicants to answer 12 out of 20 questions correctly, out of a pool of 128 possible questions.

Those who file their naturalization applications between December 1, 2020, and March 1, 2021, will have the option of taking either the 2008 or 2020 version of the test.

Most naturalization applicants are required to complete the civics test, though individuals with a physical or developmental disability or mental impairment may be exempt.

If you have questions on the civics test, or if you or a family member are interested in applying for citizenship, please reach out to one of our attorneys today to discuss your case.
