I had downloaded the resource kit months ago and took several practice tests, and I was fairly confident. Stilł, in the days leading up to my test I read the material again and took several more practice tests. Out of about 200 questions, they randomly ask you twenty, so I was hoping to get different questions each time I practiced it, but many were the same.
Then the day came and I went in to sit the actual test, and bring original documents of all the notarised copies I had submitted. About a third of the questions I got were not on the practice tests, but still I sailed through it, hesitating at just one. In the end I got one wrong (you're allowed five) and she said I had been the fastest person she'd ever seen complete the test. She couldn't say which one I got wrong but I'm sure it was the one I hesitated on. In any case, I passed and just had to wait for official notification that would advise whether I was approved. Well that came just a couple of days ago! I am approved but they will send me notification of when my citizenship ceremony will be (would be cool if it falls on Australia Day) and then I have to take an oath before I can officially become a citizen,
Both Australia and the U.S. allow dual citizenship, so I am in no way renouncing my US Citizenship, nor would I ever. But my life is here now with my husband. In fact, today is our 12th Wedding Anniversary so we have two things to celebrate. :)
