  1. English Test
  2. Civics Test.

During your naturalization interview, you will be asked questions about your application and background. You must keep in mind that you are under oath and you have to tell only the truth. You will also take an English and civics test unless you qualify for an exemption or waiver.

  1. Oral Test 
  2. Reading Test

Generally, during the naturalization interview, applicants are asked up to 10 questions from the list of 100 questions in English. The applicant should answer correctly 6 of the 10 questions to pass the civics test in English.

There are some exceptions from the naturalization test requirements. 

In the case when an applicant fails any portion of test during the initial examination, USCIS will reschedule the application for a second examination between 60 and 90 days after the initial examination. In the case when an applicant fails any portion of the naturalization test a second time, the officer will deny the application.

If you complete the Eligibility Worksheet and have questions about your eligibility, you should seek advice by consulting an attorney.
