THE REDESIGNED NATURALIZATION EXAM
In the interest of creating a more standardized, fair, and meaningful
naturalization process, the USCIS recently completed a multi-year redesign of
the U.S. citizenship exam. The revised naturalization exam, with an emphasis on the fundamental
concepts of American democracy and the rights and responsibilities of
citizenship, aims to encourage citizenship applicants to learn and identify
with the basic values we all share as Americans.
The newly redesigned naturalization exam will take effect on October 1, 2008.
After this date, all citizenship applicants must take the new test. Individuals
that have submitted their citizenship application before October 1, 2008 but
been scheduled to have the naturalization interview after October 1, 2008 can
choose whether to take the current or redesigned naturalization exam. All
applicants scheduled for the naturalization interview after October 1, 2009 must
take the new test.
