There are a number of changes being made to the citizenship test. The key changes are:                                                                                                    citizenship

  • the test questions will be rewritten in plain English
  • the test will not contain any mandatory questions
  • the current pass mark will increase from 60 per cent to 75 per cent
  • the test will be based on the Pledge of Commitment that new Australians make when becoming citizens.

The new citizenship test is planned to begin in late September 2009. The revised citizenship test resource book, which will contain all the information needed to prepare for the test, will be available from late August 2009.

You will be able to sit the new citizenship test in the same locations as with the current test including all 13 department offices, 30 Medicare offices and 4 Centrelink offices across Australia.

Will the new test be easier?

No. The test will continue to assess whether clients have an adequate knowledge of Australia and of the responsibilities and privileges of citizenship and possess a basic level of English.

Will the test only be in English?

Yes. The government is committed to the citizenship test being delivered in plain English.

If I have already passed a test will I have to sit another one if there are any changes?

No. You will not have to sit another test if you have already passed a test.

Can I make a booking to sit the new test now?

No. Appointments for the new test will not be available until the revised resource book is released in late August 2009.

Can I get a copy of the new test questions?

No. As with the current test questions, the new test questions will be confidential. However, practice questions will be available in the revised resource book and on this website.

Will assistance to complete the test still be available?

Yes. If you have difficulty reading or are unable to operate a computer you will be able to request help from a Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) officer during a standard 45 minute test. The department officer will be able to assist you by reading aloud the test questions and answers or by operating the computer. Please ensure you request assistance at the time you make your test booking.

Shares in WA explorer Mutiny Gold shot higher today after the company said it had found five new gold mineralisation zones at its White Well project east of Cue.

Mutiny said the White Well project covered 6.5 km of the Tuckabianna mineral belt, which had a total estimated resource of one million ounces over a strike length of 48km.

The White Well resource is estimated at 113,000 ounces of gold, which the company expects to enhance through further drilling and exploration.

White Well was abandoned by Newcrest Mining in the late 1990s and was acquired by Mutiny in the middle of last year. 

Mutiny Gold managing director John Greeve said he was confident White Well was a vastly underdeveloped resource.

Mutiny Gold shares were up 1.8 cents, or 64.29 per cent, to 4.6 cents at noon on low volumes.
