Effective immediately, USCIS has clarified policy guidance regarding the civics test that applicants must take before they are granted citizenship. New guidance:
- affirms that USCIS will administer only the 2008 version of the civics test and all guidance related to the 2020 civics test is removed
- affirms that USCIS will administer 10 questions from the general bank of 100 civics test questions, and accordingly, applicants need six correct answers to pass the civics test.
- affirms that USCIS will ask questions from a list of 20 specially designated civics questions when administering the civics test to applicants who qualify for special consideration because they are age 65 or older and have been lawful permanent residents for at least 20 years.
