Personal opinion: Don't try to reschedule because you think you might fail the test.

Suggestion: Start studying now, read the book and maybe keep doing the online tests once a week to keep what you learned fresh in your memory. Then once you receive test invite you are already somewhat prepared and can study a little more. With this strategy you should be fine with even just one week notice for test.
Well the issue I have with that is i may get invite 9 months from now or even later, nobody really knows. It will be hard reading that book over and over again for months.

Read the book once now - it's short, you can do it in less than an hour - than take some quizzes, so you'll get the idea of what's asked. Once your invite arrives, do it again. Should be enough and won't take much of your time.

Do not try to reschedule, just read the book twice and practice some online tests, and you will be fine. The test is easy no surprises.
Good Luck.
I agree with Oct2016......don't reschedule...if your only reason is you're not ready.....,read Discover Canada now,do some online practice test...while waiting for invite,read the book at least once a week....then when you receive your test invite,read the book again. You'll be surprised how easy the test is and how much info you'll retain.
Best of luck.

Just be aware that most of those on-line tests are scams. They throw at you ridiciously complicated questions, obscure topics, or offer you almost identical answers. Their main goal is to convince you that your knowledge is not adequate, and to lure you into spending money to buy useless "preparation material".

Study "Discover Canada", use your common reasoning, and that's it.

The official quiz, on the CIC website - http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/games/how/ - has questions fairly similar to the one on the actual test. The official book and this online quiz are enough. Some other online quizzes are quite good - such as Citizenship Count http://citizenshipcounts.ca, which is made by the Richmond Public Library and don't try to artificially complicate or sell you unofficial material or course.

But, if an online quiz tries to sell you anything, as systemic said, get out. You definitely don't need to buy anything to pass.

I recommend reading Discover Canada at least once and listening to the audio book whenever you can (cic.gc.ca/english/department/media/multimedia/audio/discover/index.asp) while commuting to/from work, doing chores, etc. Practice tests online and downloadable apps also help. And don't forget to research names of people in the government (see pages 34-35 of Discover Canada). Take note of subtle differences in wordings such as Head of State (the Queen) vs Head of Government (Prime Minister); national anthem (O Canada) vs royal anthem (God Save the Queen).

The test is not difficult if you give yourself at least a week to prepare. I have a full time job and do chores at night, wrote the test in less than 4mins and scored 20/20.

Good luck! :)

I learned the discover Canada for more than 5 hours.
I tried http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/games/how/

very bad.
I think some of the questions are not from the book.
for example.
The cornerstone of Centre Block in the Parliament Buildings was laid by Prince ______ in 1860; the son of Queen Victoria.
Who was the first woman to serve as governor general of Canada?
The first flight in Canada took place on February 23, 1909, when J.A.D. McCurdy flew the Silver Dart over which location?
When did Queen Elizabeth II and United States President Eisenhower open the St. Lawrence Seaway?
Canada has what percentage of the world's forests


Can you guys find answers from discover canada?

These questions are not from the book and will not come in the test.

I did not like the cic game questions because they were asking lots of questions about Canada that are not part of the book.

I even go a step further..if you lived in Canada for 4 years before applying for citizenship, you should have acquired sufficient knowledge about the country you live in. These questions are simple and can be answered with little difficulty. All it takes is integration and some interest.

The citizenship test questions are nothing like these questions, the actual test is easy, just read the book!
