The Trump Administration Just Made the Citizenship Test Harder. How Would You Do?

Test your knowledge on some of the topics from American history and government that prospective new citizens have to answer.

The Trump administration adopted changes to the citizenship test that could make it more difficult to pass. The new test draws from 128 possible questions, up from 100, and prospective citizens now have to answer 12 out of 20 questions correctly in order to pass. Previously, passing required correctly answering six out of 10 questions.

You can read our full article about the changes to the citizenship test here.

One thing peculiar to me about multiple choice questions is that I can guess and still get the required numbers correct, besides, that's their problem, everybody has problem.

Not necessarily, it is still 60%. and the sample size of questions has increased a bit.

Canadian citizenship requires you pass 15 out of 20 questions.

Before anyone comes for me know that I'm a christian but I stopped taking this guy seriously when he called Trump his spiritual daddy. You can support him but don't claim he is Holy. That's where me and you go fight.

But how hard can it be really? In my opinion, once you read the recommended book and watch a few YouTube videos, there's nothing there one cannot answer.
