ANNOUNCEMENT: ***POTENTIAL CHANGES COMING TO THE US CITIZENSHIP TEST IN 2024***
Since 2008, applicants’ spoken English has been tested during the naturalization interview by asking them questions about themselves from the information that applicants provided in their naturalization application, such as current and prior residential addresses and employment history. The test has also included the applicants being asked to answer short-answer civics questions orally based on a list of 100 possible questions.
The new process would instead require applicants to describe photographs of daily activities.
In the new test, applicants would have to answer a multi-choice civics test.
The USCIS has announced a tentative 2024 launch for the revised test.
