In the new exam the number of questions increased to 20 and you have to answer 12 correctly. This change is a response to President Joe Biden's Executive Order, "Restoring Faith in Our Legal Immigration System", that directed a review of the naturalization process to eliminate barriers to the process.

The Biden administration has ejected a new test system for U.S. citizenship introduced by former President Trump on December 1, and the full system of questions and citizenship will be in place from March 1, according to USCIS.

In a bid to eliminate barriers and make the path to U.S. citizenship more accessible to all eligible candidates, the Biden administration has scrapped the citizenship test introduced by the Trump regime.

The move is the latest by the new Biden administration to wipe away Trump-era immigration changes and delivers yet another victory to activists who'd called for a clean-slate approach.

In the old exam, the agency posed 10 questions, of which the immigrant had to answer 6 correctly.

Content. The 2020 test expanded the pool of possible questions from 100 to approximately 128.

The 2008 civics test was thoroughly developed over a multi-year period with the input of more than 150 organizations, which included English as a second language experts, educators, and historians, and was piloted before its implementation.

The civics test is administered to applicants who apply for USA citizenship through naturalization and is one of the statutory requirements for naturalizing.

He said activists at the time complained that his test was too tough and would keep people from passing.

He added: "This is the typical argument of leftist advocates, many of whom would actually prefer that naturalization applicants not be tested at all".

Mr. Law said scrapping the new test was an insult to the career staffers who wrote the new test. It will now revert to the earlier 2008 civics test module.

"This was an all aboveboard process, this was not politically driven to deny an otherwise eligible applicant from naturalization", Mr. Law said.

"Should the backlogs get worse, many applicants won't be able to get an interview or test until months from now".

Applicants for naturalization have two opportunities to pass the English Language Proficiency and Citizenship Examination.
