All citizenship applicants who sit the test on or after 15 November 2020 will take a new updated Australian citizenship test.
Changes to the citizenship test include:
- A new test resource booklet Australian Citizenship: Our Common Bond with a lot more information to remember.
- New revised questions.
- New questions on Australian Values (Part 4 of our Australian Citizenship Our Common Bond).
All 5 questions on Australian values must be answered correctly, with a passing mark of at least 75 per cent overall, making it harder to pass the new test.
You must pass the test to become an Australian citizen. You will not be able to refer to the test booklet during your test.
We recommend using our Australian citizenship practice test program if:
- You want to pass the test on the first attempt.
- You want to become familiar with the official test format.
- You learn better in a guided, structured and supportive setting.
