Are the Immigrants scared of “Citizenship Test?”
Citizenship test is testing the immigrants hard
If you are staying in Canada as an immigrant you would be surely keen to get “the citizenship status”.
For this you must fulfil the following criteria -
•You must have been living in Canada for three continuous years or to be more precise 1095 days.
•As an applicant you must have a sound knowledge of English and French.
•You should have a sound knowledge of Canada which includes the knowledge of voting rights, obeying the law, history of the nation, symbols and geography.
To sit for this test one has to submit a filled in application form. After the process of application is started you would receive an acknowledge letter and a copy of study guide entailing the entire process and information to make things easier for you.
All the adults’ immigrants have to pass the citizenship test which will either be a written test or an interview with a citizenship judge. An n interview is organized when you do not clear the written test.
In a recent happening all those who applied for the test have been expressing their dissatisfaction over the kind of questions they had to answer in the test.
They said that the questions expect you to remember the exact dates and names from the history of Canada which they find to be of “lesser significance”. The questions were from early history of Canada.
Citizenship and immigration Canada had commissioned a report according to which the new test introduced in 2010 was quite liked by the takers. This test revolved around the general knowledge of the nation. People believe that it makes sense to know about the country where you are becoming a citizen is always welcomed.
On contrary to this, a report prepared by the polling firm Ipsos Reid says, that “would be citizens” wondered aloud about the historical questions asked in the test which they find to be of little relevance.
In spite of the contrasting reports, if you are keen to get the citizenship you must prepare well about every aspect likely to be aske din the test.
There are Institutes providing guidance on the same. They train you online and even live classes are held to prepare your for the eventful day.
