One in four new Canadians are failing the REVISED citizenship test exam. The passing rate is set at 75%
meaning that 15 out of the 20 multiple choice answers on the sheet have to be correct.
A lot of new immigrants from the middle east, even though successful here are having trouble with
the test, interpreting the meaning of the multiple choice answers to arrive at the correct answer.
Not sure if any past Canadian history is included or just recent facts..but apparently, immigrants from
english speaking countries and the British Isles, maybe Australia/New Zealand have less trouble.
The content of the questionaire for citizenship is fairly straightforward to anyone that is educated
here and has a basic understanding of the history of Canada..but for some, who's mother tongue
is not english or french...it's more difficult, although some of the questions are easy
ie; Where are the parliament buildings located?
