Naturalization Test Returning to 2008 Version
On December 1, 2020, USCIS introduced a new version of the civics test for naturalization (2020 civics test). The new version of the test had 128 civics questions instead of the original 100 civics questions in addition to the English reading and writing portions. On February 02, 2021, President Biden issued his Executive Order on Restoring Faith in Our Legal Immigration Systems and Strengthening Integration and Inclusion Efforts for New Americans. As part of this executive order, he ordered USCIS to go back to the 2008 version of the test, the version used before December 1, 2020.
As of March 1, 2021, USCIS will use the 2008 version of the test. People who applied after December 1, 2020 will have the option of taking either the 2008 version or 2020 version until April 19, 2021. After April 19, 2021, applicants will only be given the 2008 version. For study materials, pleas visit the Naturalization Exam page.
