The difference between one and the other lies, among other things, in the number of questions, since in November 2020, the Donald Trump government approved a test with 128 questions.

However, the 2008 one contained only 100, now those who take the exam will have two chances to take it.

In this exam, two fundamental things are considered to be able to give the green light to US citizenship: English language and civics.

The agency explained: “USCIS received approximately 2,500 comments from the public regarding the 2020 civics test.”

“Several comments pointed out that there was little advance notice before the implementation of the civic education test of 2020, which raised concerns about the limited time for study and preparation, as well as the delivery of materials and resources,” the authorities mentioned in agreement to Univision.

He added: “Due to the comments and in accordance with the Executive Order to restore faith in our immigration legal systems and strengthen the integration and inclusion of New Americans Efforts, USCIS will return to the 2008 test.”

After learning that USCIS will re-apply the old 200 test for immigrants to obtain citizenship, the agency reaffirmed its position with a statement.

“There will be a short period during which USCIS may offer both versions of test a to accommodate certain naturalization applicants who applied after December 1, 2020 or before March 1, 2021 and an interview is scheduled for before April 19, 2021 “.

According to Univision, the USCIS mentioned that: “It will administer the 2008 civics test to applicants who applied for naturalization before December 1, 2020, or who will submit the application as of March 1, 2021.”

Additionally: “Will give applicants the option to take the 2008 civics test or the 2020 citizenship test in cases where applicants submitted their application for naturalization on or after December 1, 2020 and before March 1 2021, and they have their interview scheduled for before April 19, 2021 ”.

And he concluded on the application of this exam so that immigrants can obtain United States citizenship: “It will administer the civic education test of 2008 to all applicants whose interviews are scheduled for April 19, 2021.”
