WASHINGTON -- Immigration officials have whittled their list of questions for a new naturalization test. The new questions will be given to test takers beginning in October of 2008.
A total of 100 civics and history questions are available for the new test. Forty-two questions were eliminated. Test takers will only be given 10 at a time. They'll have to get six right to pass that portion of the test.
Ninety-two percent of test takers passed the exam during a test run of the new questions. Immigration officials say that compares to an 84% pass rate for immigrants taking the current test for the first time.
