The prospect of becoming a U.S. citizen is probably one that has you feeling hopeful and enthusiastic about your future. Getting to the point where you are granted citizenship requires time, effort and preparation. 

When you are proactive it can pay dividends in how efficiently you are able to get through the process in Maryland. The more thorough you are in following instructions and submitting the required details, you can avoid having to re-submit time-consuming paperwork. 

The process 

Attaining citizenship is a process that will require you to check off various requirements before you are granted full citizenship. If you were not born in the United States, you will need to apply for naturalization. A couple of parts will include an interview where you will discuss various aspects of citizenship with an interviewer, as well as a comprehensive test that will judge your understanding of life in the United States. 

Preparing for your naturalization test 

The more prepared you are to take your test, the more confident you may feel in your ability to provide answers that are educated and accurately demonstrate your desire to be a U.S. citizen. According to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, you will be tested in four different areas including writing, reading, civics and speaking. On the website for UCIS, you can access study materials and tips to help you effectively prepare. Details about how your test will be scored are also available. 

It may benefit you to know that you are allowed to complete the civics and English portions of your exam a total of two times per application. If you are unable to pass a part of your test initially, you will be allowed to retake it but will be required to wait between 60 to 90 days.
