New Naturalization Test Now In Use

Beginning on October 1, 2008, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) began administering the redesigned naturalization test.  As a result, all applicants who filed their N-400 Application for Naturalization on or after this date will be required to take the redesigned test.  Those who submitted their
naturalization applications before this date and who appear for their initial exam after October 1, have the option of taking either the old test or the new redesigned test.

According to the USCIS, one of the primary purposes of redesigning the test was to ensure that applicants seeking citizenship have a meaningful understanding of American history and government.  As a result, the USCIS will now ask questions regarding history and government from a completely
new list of 100 questions, and will administer new English reading and writing exams.
