I applied for citizenship December 2017, 1st. Still waiting for test invitation. I called them before holidays. They said I need to give them more time. Any body in the same situation?

Rather than calling i suggest you send them an email using webform. Call centre agents have limited knowledge of ur app on the other hand email will go to your processing officer who will then respond accordingly. Do highlight the fact in ur email that you are past due 12 months processing standard.

I did my test today at the Mississauga location and I was surprised not to see the place fully packed, maybe coz it was an early morning test? Anyhow, I scored 19/20, one question kynda threw me OFF. My best advice is READ THE STUDY GUIDE! Every single bit of it LOL, including the margins.....sigh. The question that got me was right in the margins and I remember looking at it hahahha! So study guide, study guide, study guide!

After the test, I had the interview with the officer and he asked for my ID's, prohibition form and passports. Checked my travel history and everything was good. He told me waiting times for Oath invitation should be 6-8 weeks but can be longer coz they have a backlog........arrgh. So waiting game begins agaaaaaaaaain!!!!!!!
