U.S. Citizenship Test Preparation

Study with Confidence

During your naturalization interview, a USCIS Officer will ask you questions about your application and background. You will also take an English and civics test unless you qualify for an exemption or waiver. The English test has three components: reading, writing and speaking. The civics test covers important U.S. history and government topics. See below to learn more about the test and the free study tools available to help you prepare

Your ability to speak English will be determined by a USCIS Officer during your eligibility interview on Form N-400, Application for Naturalization.

Reading Test

You must read aloud one out of three sentences correctly to demonstrate an ability to read in English. The Reading Test Vocabulary List (PDF, 185 KB) will help you study for the English reading portion of the naturalization test. The content focuses on civics and history topics.

Writing Test

You must write one out of three sentences correctly to demonstrate an ability to write in English. The Writing Test Vocabulary List (PDF, 181 KB) will help you study for the English writing portion of the naturalization test. The content focuses on civics and history topics.

Civics Test

There are 100 civics questions on the naturalization test (PDF, 295 KB). During your naturalization

interview, you will be asked up to 10 questions from the list of 100 questions. You must

answer correctly six (6) of the 10 questions to pass the civics test.

 

You have two opportunities to take the English and civics tests per application. If you fail

a portion of the test during your first interview, you will be retested on the portion of the test that

you failed between 60 and 90 days from the date of your initial interview.
