I'm going to have to close this thread because it got totally trashed by a massive spam attack and my attempts to fix it didn't yield desired results.

I scored 80% (2nd test) and 21 of 24 (1st test). Am I elligible for a US passport now? I really want to give you guys some of my income in taxes for the privilege of not living in your country.

Its the difficulty of such tests that makes me proud of those who immigrate to the US legally. To think they could possibly know more about how the US was founded and its principles means they likely have a great appreciation for their new home.

I got 90% I got two wrong, not bad. and didn't even look up the questions either. they were trick questions, that more than one option could have been the answer or similar, but still not bad. so I'm a citizen for sure now

I think if these are the kinds of questions that one has to take in order for citizenship, they should be made more difficult.
These are generic factoids that can be obtained from a 2-3 hour study session with someone who has taken the 6th Grade Social Studies course.
Realistically, the obstacle isn't the test that one has to take for citizenship.
It's the financial aspects that prevent most from going through nationalization in an official capacity.
I believe the application for nationalization itself is around $700-750.
Most require a lawyer to ensure that all of the paperwork is correct and the required documents are given to the government with the application ($1,000-5,000 depending on lawyer and area).

These tests?
I think, given the financial obstacle, simplistic tests like these are fine.
If they were to make nationalization more accessible to immigrations or would-be citizens (on a financial layer), then the test needs to be more challenging than the case-examples provided in either of these two "practice tests".

17 out of 24, less than I thought I would get, but apparently I passed? At least it congratulated me Surprisingly easy, considering my knowledge of stuff like the political system of the US is pretty shallow, if I actually wanted to take that test I'd study first and it seems like I don't really need to do much to pass.

Yes passed.


I don't even know my countries Capital let alone Americas who cares,
Also knowing what ocean whilst an easy question...completely useless.

If they actually asked useful questions that would be nice xD but then i can't expect much if it's an American test if that actually is how it will be.

I passed 11 / 24 some of the questions were retarded though (the easy ones) and serve as not a good question for citizenship tests.

Granted i would have gotten 24 if i did any research into us history other then what little i know but still cmon ask good questions.
