In order to become a naturalized U.S. citizen, everyone must first pass the naturalization test. During your naturalization interview, you will have to answer many different questions about your application and background. You will also need to take an English and civics test.
USCIS offers many kinds of study materials such as:
- Study Materials for the Civics Test
- Study Materials for the English Test
These and other citizenship resources for immigrants, educators, and organizations are available on the Citizenship Resource Center website.
Exceptions made for English & Civics Requirements
For further information on exceptions or modifications to the English and civics requirements for the naturalization process you will need to visit the online website of Citizenship Resource Center. There you can find what exceptions can be made and which are the cases that do qualify for the exception status.
If you don’t pass the naturalization test…
In total, you will have two opportunities to take the English and civics tests and also, to answer all questions relating to your naturalization application in English. If in any case, you fail any of the tests at your initial interview, you will be retested on the portion of the test that you failed (English or civics) after 60 and 90 days from the date of your first interview.
