The average reader score on this exam was 83%, though I don't know what it was for actual test-takers. 92% of applicants achieve the 60% minimum score needed to pass it.

I got 98% of the questions right. I missed on on the number of amendments and one on the year the Constitution was created (though I was close on both). How will you do?

I'll take it. I expect to fail. I think the test is a stupid requirement to citizenship though. Just make aure the people coning in are coming in slow enough to become American instead of having enclaves that breed divisiveness, and make sure their very presence improves the country in some way.

I got a 99, but the one I got wrong had a really shitty question wording.

Okay that was a lot easier than I thought. Stopped halfway through from sheer boredom and was on pace to get about 90%

I hate the won that asks what type of economy America has, and apparently they count capitalism as the correct answer.

Lol, for a second I though that 'Have you tried unfiltered raw honey?' was on the citizenship test.
"Whatever else is evil, the pride of a good mother in the beauty of her daughter is good. It is one of those adamantine tendernesses which are the touchstones of every age and race. If other things are against it, other things must go down. If landlords and laws and sciences are against it, landlords and laws and sciences must go down. With the red hair of one she-urchin in the gutter I will set fire to all modern civilization."

I think it's a poor question - I agree. We don't have a pure free market, but I knew capitalism was going to be the correct answer.

American culture is generally fairly boring, but still managed to pass with 63%
Meh!

You know I just took this today; I don't know if it's coincidence or not that it showed up on the forums here.
