Key aspects of Norway's citizenship test

The Norwegian citizenship test (Norwegian: statsborgerprøve) is one of the two tests that most people need to pass before they can apply for citizenship in the country.

The test itself lasts up to 60 minutes, and you must take it in Norwegian. However, you'll be free to choose either the bokmål or the nynorsk form of the Norwegian language. There are a total of 36 questions in the citizenship test. In order to successfully pass the (real) test, you need to have 24 correct answers.
