19 Apr Could you pass a US citizenship test?
In order to become a US citizen, immigrants must pass the Naturalization Test. American citizenship bestows the right to vote, improves the likelihood of family members living in other countries to come and live in the US, gives eligibility for federal jobs, and can be a way to demonstrate loyalty to the US.
Applicants must get 6 answers out of 10 in an oral exam to pass the test. According to US Citizenship and Immigration services, 92 percent of applicants pass this test. (from the Christian Science Monitor 12 April, 2012). Shamefully, those of us who take our history and citizenship for granted may well have difficulty with this test. How did you do?
