NEW: Trump Administration to Implement New, More Difficult US Citizenship Test on December 1, 2020

Beginning December 1, the Trump Administration will implement a new US citizenship test that is more difficult than the current exam in use since 2008.

The new citizenship exam will require applicants to answer twenty questions, instead of the current ten questions asked, while still answering at least 60 percent of the questions correctly. In addition, beginning December 1, officers must ask applicants all 20 questions. Previously, immigration officers would stop asking an applicant questions as soon as he or she answered at least six questions out of ten correctly.

In addition, immigration officers may now ask applicants questions from a bank of 128 questions focused on American government, history, symbols and holidays. The previous test only had a bank of 100 possible questions.
