Find out if You’re Ready for the Exam With Citizenship Test Questions and Answers

Citizenship exams can be intimidating, especially since this can determine whether or not you get to stay in Canada as a full-fledged citizen. Fortunately, there are various effective ways to prepare for the Canadian citizenship exam. Read on to know how you can prepare for this exam and be on your own towards becoming a Canadian citizen.

How to Prepare for the Canadian Citizenship Exam

Know what it is

Citizenship Test Questions and AnswersIt is important to know what options you have when you are planning on taking the exam so you can prepare accordingly. If you can read and write in English, you will be required to take the written test which is composed of 20 multiple-choice questions. However, if you have a handicap or any barrier that makes it impossible to take the written exam, you can sit for the citizenship interview, which can last for as long as 90 minutes. With the current situation, interviews are done either in person or via teleconference.

What do you need to know?

The test will cover knowledge on the following:

  • basic rights, freedoms, and duties of citizens
  • history and culture
  • geography
  • Monarchy
  • how to take part in society
  • political system and branches of government
  • Canadian symbols

Use the right study materials

The most effective way to study for the citizenship test questions and answers is to learn with a recommended study guide. For Canadian citizenship, this is Discover Canada: The Rights and Responsibilities of Citizenship. This guide is provided by the government to help applicants prepare for and pass the citizenship exam and contain all the information you need to know to pass the test.

Take notes!

Note-taking is an effective way to help ideas and data stick. This comes in handy if you are looking at a limited time frame within which you can study for the test. If you have a hard copy of the study guide, you can jot down notes so you can better understand what you’re reading.

Practice, practice, practice!

Whether you are taking the written exam or the interview, you need to practice so you can ensure that you finish on time or you can give oral answers with confidence. Use flashcards, practice with a partner if you are doing the interview, or take mock examinations to improve your exam-taking skills. You can start with the practice questions available online. If you get questions wrong, read and reread and retake the practice exam. Do this often enough to master the basic principles and to feel comfortable about taking the exam.

Know that you can retake the test

There’s no reason to feel pressure before you take the test. If you don’t pass the first test but meet the other citizenship requirements, you will be scheduled for a second test. This is your opportunity to study harder and focus on your weak areas, if there are any. Even if you fail the second test, you will be granted a hearing to assess your suitability for citizenship.

The Canadian government wants to make sure that citizenship applicants get all the assistance they need to become citizens. Keep these tips in mind if you plan to take the next step towards becoming a Canadian citizen.
