What Is A Citizenship Test?

Once your application has been accepted, you might need to give a citizenship test. This test is intended to let the applicants show what they know about Canada. In the citizenship test, there are 20 questions which encompass:

  1. Economy
  2. History
  3. Rights and duties of a Canadian
  4. Rules
  5. Symbols
  6. Geography
  7. Government

The citizenship test is directed in either English or French and is for about half an hour. The test has both true/false and multiple-choice questions. In exceptional instances, the exam might be directed verbally. The applicants can utilize the government‘s free resources to prepare for the test.

An invitation would be granted to the applicants for taking the citizenship exam after obtaining verification that their completed application has undergone processing. The applicants would also be provided a date and time to attend the test. If they do not appear for the test, they will have to give it in writing to the government and clarify why they should offer them another date. The application might be terminated if the government does not get a genuine reason.
