The Citizenship Test
Well I wrote the citizenship test on Friday. It went pretty well. I'm pretty sure I passed. I didn't get 100% though I am certain I made at least one mistake. It was a dumb question to miss too...The question was: Which of the following is one of the responsibilities of municipal government? a) foreign policy, b)highways, c) postal service and d) building regulations. I chose (b) it was supposed to be (d).
I walked into where I was going to be writing the test and as soon as I arrived they told us to line up so that they could look over our documents and ID and seat us for the test. Even though I was last to arrive since I was already up I was in line first. YES! After I got ushered in the usher came up to me and started chatting with me. She asked if I was Turkish and I said yes. She said her boyfriend was Turkish and was telling me all the Turkish words she knew. She was chatty and very nice which made me less nervous than I was. I also met a Columbian girl who was also very sweet. After I wrote my test. I had to go up to one of the ushers so they could staple my info to my test. Of course, I chose the usher who was talking to me. She quickly looked over my answers and gave me a thumbs up so I guess that's my unofficial test result!
Overall it was quite easy. Much easier than the practice test I posted last week. I think I finished all 20 questions in about 5 minutes. I re-read them at least twice. I was stumped by that municipal gov question but I figured I'd better put something on there than leave it blank.
Everyone keep your fingers crossed for me. If all goes well I should be a citizen before christmas. Yupppie!!!
