Tips For Preparing For Canadian Citizenship Exam

When you receive your notification to sit your Canadian citizenship exam, you need to ensure that you pass. The notice will give the information on where you will take the exam, the date and time and what you need to bring with you for the exam. It will also tell you what to do if you cannot take the test. You should prepare thoroughly for your citizenship exam; here are essential tips to prepare for the exam.

Be Curious

If you study early, you are likely to remember more. Before your notice arrives, spend as much time as possible learning about Canada. In case you have a question about Canadian History or Government, make sure that you ask. You can also look up that information on the internet. You may find interesting things about Canada online that will grow your knowledge. Remember, the more you know, the less you will have to remember during the exam.

Canadian Citizenship ExamOrganize your Study Space

Make sure that you choose a space without distractions to study for your citizenship test. Organize your study materials carefully; it is difficult to concentrate when working at an untidy table. Do not read in front of the TV, and you can disconnect your wifi so that you are not tempted to visit movie streaming sites. Ensure that you have enough light at your study table and your chair is comfortable. If you live with family or friends, tell them to keep the TV at a low volume.

Take a Class

There are citizenship classes available, and you will be able to understand better in a classroom environment. These classes offer lessons on Canada’s history, form of government, politics and political history, social and cultural history, and symbols. You will discuss issues with your classmates and ask questions, in case you do not understand. Being in a classroom will also lower your anxiety about the exam as you speak to the other people preparing for the citizenship exam. Discussion is also a great way to ensure that you retain the material taught in the class and is much better than reading alone.

Read the Official Study Guide

Ensure that you read Discover Canada: The Rights and Responsibilities of Citizenship. Every question you will have to answer during the test is in this guide, so make sure you have read and understood it. You should ensure that you read it every day so that you remember everything. The book is available for download online. Since it is in soft copy, you can use your commute to read or take it to the park with you and read it there.

Practise Tests

Practise tests are an excellent way to prepare for exams. There are several practice tests online that you can use to prepare for your exam. These tests are not an alternative to studying, and you will have difficulties with the actual exam if you do not read. If questions are phrased differently from those in the practice tests, you will have problems answering them if you have not studied.

Use the practice tests after you have studied and are confident about your ability to handle the questions without referring to your citizenship guide. If you make a habit of checking for answers in the study guide, you will have a lot of problems during the actual test. You can get citizenship practice tests on Richmond Public Library Citizenship Practice Test, or Toronto Public Library Citizenship Test

Get a Study Buddy

Whether you are in high school or at university, a study buddy is a useful asset. If you are in a class, you can get one of your classmates to study with you. You can read together or discuss the various issues that come up. If you do not know anyone taking the test, you can have a friend or family member help you study. Having a study partner will improve your retention, and they can suggest other study methods that may help you. They will also help you with recall and make preparing for the test interesting.

Taking the Canadian citizenship exam is an excellent opportunity to become a Canadian citizen. Study carefully and do not memorize, and you are bound to do very well.
