When you are staying in Canada for a longer time, you are working there, or you are maybe starting your family there, you will have to do few things before you become a regular citizen. Until then, you are just a tourist or an immigrant who has to apply for permission to stay longer, or you have to get out of the borders and come back at certain periods. When you have a constant and stable working place, permission can be obtained easily.
After you finish your time staying, have a working place that is stable, and you are living in the same place for a long time, you have to proceed to take the test and have the opportunity to become a citizen with all the paperwork needed. For the exam, you will have to be prepared well so you don’t fail and miss the chance. Sure, this is not the only one, but why stress out multiple times when you can finish everything at once.
In this article, we will talk about the pass rate for Canadian citizenship why it is like that, and how to prepare so you can get it faster and without additional stress.
Why is it important
To acquire the document, you have to take this exam but getting prepared for it you will learn a lot of things that happened in the past, and basically things that you have to know when you become a citizen.
That will prepare you for the life there in the future because you will learn basic rules that the state has so you don’t get in trouble with the law. You will also learn about places that have significant value for the state that you can visit and appreciate. Understanding local politics is also required because you will have to know who you want to represent in the future.
In order to pass the exam, you will have to solve at least fifteen questions of the total twenty as suggested by www.canadiancitizenshiptests.ca. That may look hard, but if you learn enough, you will pass without a problem. The statistics show that the pass rate is about eighty percent for people who have stayed less and about seventy for people who are living there for more years. The reason for that can be because of wrong self-confidence or lack of motivation. People who stayed there longer, think that they already know everything that will be on the exam, and they don’t study hard enough so they are surprised with the results wondering what happened and how they failed.
People who are living there a few years have higher motivation because they stress more about the exam and they put the higher effort into studying and that is why the results are looking like this. In addition, because they are relatively new there, they are keener to learn more because they are interested in the things there, especially the past and the laws because you don’t want to get in trouble because you did something that you didn’t know you are not allowed to.
How to get prepared
You will have 30 minutes to have the exam done so you will have to be prepared well. Getting ready for an exam like this one might be stressful because your future is dependent on it. Sure, you can retake it but why do that when you can finish on your first try. There are materials that you can study from on the site of the bureau of the government that is responsible for these activities. Depending on your preferences, you can have the materials in any format possible so there is basically no excuse to not get prepared. All you have to do is spend enough time and read it carefully and try to remember as much as you can.
After studying, you can find a test that passed in the past so you can try to solve them and see your progress or see if you are ready to take it on your own. If you notice that you have weak spots in some topic, go back and reread it so you are confident in the things that you have learned when the time comes to prove yourself. You can find tests like these on the internet, all you have to do is type on your browser and you will see results. Some of them are free and you can start right away. There are forums that you can visit with people who took this exam in the past and see the advice that they give to make sure that you do everything right.
What happens next
Since you are now prepared, all you have to do is schedule your exam. They will give you the exact time few weeks prior so you will have enough time to rerun the material, especially things that you are not so good at. If you did great on the exam, you will be invited to an event where you will be given the documents, and you will have to do a ceremony of an oath and to become a citizen. Sometimes, you may be invited to an interview so they can confirm your abilities there.
If you are not well prepared and you fail this exam, you will have to take another one, and if you somehow do bad at that again, you will have to have a conversation with someone from the bureau where you will be asked questions from the same materials. If you did well on the conversation with someone from the bureau, they will allow you to go further and take the documents and you have become a citizen.
Make sure that you prepare well for it because your future is dependent on this document, you have spent time to try and build something in that state, and it is a shame not to put effort enough to pass this exam and become a citizen like everyone else.
