I gave my citizenship test yesterday. The most difficult part of test was to fit the id card in the green box and face in the oval box. The webcam stream was the mirror image of actual video. Did anyone else find it difficult or was it just me :D

I also made a mistake. Initially i was testing a webcam using meet.google.com. And then i left that empty meeting running and few other tabs while i wrote the test in another window. After finishing the test I realized that I had few more tabs and a tab using webcam all the while. Will that be an issue?

Test however was easier than the practice tests i gave.

Hi Ka93!
Any update on your file after decision made in October? Any news on oath for you yet? Just trying to understand the wait time between Test, DM and Oath in Kitchener in general.

I got my GCMS notes today (48th day) which is Sunday. Does it mean they are working on weekends now before Christmas?

Did you end up going to the Passport Canada office in Toronto because Service Canada is too slow to even issue same day passport? I'm guessing you did a walk in w/o appointment and gave them travel tickets. Can you confirm how you managed?

How do they send the notes? Via email or it needs to be checked on the IRCC website?
It's received by email or as a CD, whichever you choose when filling the form. I suspect all people choose email, because who is still using CDs .. :rolleyes:
