It's not easy to make the grade as a U.S. citizen

The Deal: One part of the process of becoming a citizen involves a civics quiz. Applicants study 100 possible questions and are asked 10. They have to get six correct.


Let me tell you right now that I build such tests as this for a living, and I can assure you that my name would never appear on such an exam as we see here.

It's way too short to be anything more than an arbitrary hurdle with very poor reliability.

BTW, I passed the exam on the site. I hope that means I may retain my passport.
