It’s finally over cleared my Citizenship Exam and hoping to take the oath to be proud Canadian soon. A day of studying the guide and 5 minutes to finish the exam.
For those taking the new Canadian Citizenship exam here is the format:
1. There will be 20 multiple choice question (on paper, no computer based exam)
2. You must answer 15 correctly that is 75% you must get right.
3. Must answer 2 specific question correctly (else its a fail and out of 4 other question must get atleast 2 right) so in total about 4 questions they specify must be answered correctly.
4. Usually a 30 minute exam.
Note : You must read the book thoroughly though, there were as i talked to few other folks some common sense questions and some that you probably cannot answer if you have not read the booklet (Discover Canada: the Rights and Responsibilities ). Also there are probably 3 different sets of exams, so the person beside you will probably have a different question paper than you, and by that its not just rearranged questions but actually different questions. Mine i think was the easiest, or atleast found it rather easy, probably got 19/20 only had doubt on one question.
Oath ceremony probably in 2 weeks time. So an exciting day today 🙂 . Good luck to those taking the exam in few weeks time, don’t sweat if you managed to go through the booklet atleast once. Did not have many questions relating to dates as such, but still a good thing to remember what happened in 1812 and 1867 :).
