Can You Pass the Latest U.S. Citizenship Test?
 
IMO, only 10% of the population would pass. We all seem to be pretty knowledgeable about U.S. History so I think from our pool of people, we will be a little better than average.

Anyways, here it goes:

0-20%: Maybe you're still thinking too much about the Old Country.

25-40%: Mmmm. Do you really want to be a citizen? This kind of performance isn't going to impress those nice immigration folks.

45-60%: Not too bad, but you really need to break out the civics books again -- word is, the INS is looking for an 80 percent score.

65-80%: Hey, you may make a good citizen yet! Look at your wrong answers and a little revision should do the trick.

85-100%:
Welcome to the United States! (And, truth be told, you know more about this great land than most Americans.)

My Score: 85%

I got 95 % I did not know who Susan B was. With a Masters degree in History I would hope I would know better.

Must not have been because apart from her getting a dollar coin I have never heard of her. I could say more but that would give the answer away.:laugh:

95% for me as well, I only missed #16, the question about who takes over if the President and Vice President can't serve. I knew that one too, but I second guessed myself at the last minute. :ashamed:
