Anyway, I'd post my score if I was you - I'm sure you've done better than some government officials we know and love!
Umm..Yea...I dont think I did better than anybody.

Much to my surprise, I got 95%. I missed the one about the form, too.

If it bothers you, there are loads of interesting places to learn about US government.

If not, enjoy your notority!

I aced it!

Geez, 45% and I was born here.

45%??!!! That's a heck of alot better than I did!!
post #37 of 59
You answered 85% of questions correctly. Here's your rating:

I missed the three freedoms( forgot religion) ... I thought the president could declare war(didnt he??lol) and I got congress and the house of reps numbers mixed up... not bad for a biology major

I aced it too, though I had to guess the form one as well.
post #39 of 59
I got an 85%. I out thought myself on #8 (which amendment isn't about voting), went too fast on #15 (I was thinking of the Senate, not Congress as a whole), and have no clue what form to fill out in #19. Not too bad.

95% here. I missed the one about the INS form too. Why is that question relevent anyway? If they're taking the test, they must have submitted the correct form to apply for citizenship, do ya think? Why not a question about a form they will have to use in the future, like the 1040?

85%
85-100%: Welcome to the United States! (And, truth be told, you know more about this great land than most Americans.)
Not too bad for a Canadian who didn't study for the test. I'll readily admit that I guessed some of them, but if you think about the questions, they can be educated guesses.

I got 3, 8 and 19 wrong and 19 was cause I don't need to know the form cause I was born here.

I got a 70%. I don't like how they listed the 13 original colonies. its all jumbled and hard to read and determine what was in one and not the other!
post #45 of 59
I got a 60%.....that is pretty bad..lol but I hated history in school
post #46 of 59
I got 85%, but considering that I have only lived in this country for a few months....
post #47 of 59
I got an 80%, not bad for me since i really find american history booooring and only paid attention to as much as I had too to pass gov't
post #48 of 59
Not good...
post #49 of 59
70% here. Not too bad I guess, considering I never liked history or politics much. lol
post #50 of 59
I got 90%--I missed the one about the form too, and the one about who picks Supreme Court justices, which I think was kind of a trick question (I said the Senate, since you can't be appointed without Senate approval...)
post #51 of 59

post #55 of 59
I got 70% - not bad for an Aussie
post #56 of 59
I got fifty not bad for a foreigner
post #57 of 59
I'm at a 70%...not too bad seeing I never liked government or American History.
Wow, and for NOT being an immigrate to the US, I knew which form to fill out for INS Well, which isn't fair because 1) How many citizens are going to fill out that form and 2) It's not INS anymore, it's called something else (INS was split after 9/11)
post #58 of 59
I got 90%. The test is basic knowledge of American history and law, stuff you should have learned in high school.
post #59 of 59
90% for me. But I would have done a lot worse if it hadn't been multiple choice.
