Hi all, I have a question.

I took the citizenship test online 3-4 weeks ago and I passed. I always check the website to see the update on my application but they still didn't change anything.

I took my test with a PC and external webcam.
I took a picture of myself and the PR card and submitted them and completed the exam. I didn't see myself during the exam.
Now , i'm reading comments that people said they saw themselves in the corner of the screen during the test. I did not see myself. Did anybody else have this issue. Some are saying the software they made for the test only works well with laptops or built in cameras only , but I used my PC with external logitech webcam, since the camera is much clearer and better quality.

If there is a problem with the test recognizing PC USB cameras, they should make applicants aware of this, as now that I have read these things in this forum, I am very stressed about this. I already waited 1.5 years to get the invite for online test because the in person were cancelled due to covid. This is very stressful. I saw one post on here where somebody said with PC it's 50/50 coin flip if their software recognizes your camera. Wouldn't they be aware of an issue this big ? I checked my chrome settings and all settings were set to "allow". No issues on my end.

Before the test, I clicked accept to everything and gave access to my camera. I did not receive any pop up or notifications during my test which said anything , or else I would have fixed anything that needed to be fixed right away. They should give some kind of pop-up or notification, How was I supposed to know that I should see myself in the corner of the screen. The test instructions did not mention this.

Now it's been 30 days and from what I've read here, It looks like I will get a retest email , so unfortunate. Has anyone else had this problem, or will it be a guarantee re-test situation ?

Dear All,
Forgot the ID Card while taking the test (Very idiotic of me !!)

Instead of showing the ID card, I took the photo of myself absent mindedly.
I have taken the test and passed it . after two hours, I just realized this mistake and not sure what to do about this.

So I have replied to the email explaining the mistake and requested them to consider my Driving License (I attached the file to the email)

Please suggest the options to correct this situation.
My 2nd daughter did the same as you she took photo of herself instead of ID and she also passed the test. Our test on the tracker are all complete except her. anybody has the same situation and got another test invitation.

hey guys, I took the online test today and passed.
However, I made one mistake and I forgot to take picture of my photo ID and instead took mine (silly me).
1. I think my test results will be invalidated. Is that correct?
2. If so, then what are the next steps? Will IRCC contact me or do I need to contact them?
3. Any idea how long it takes to get the test invite again if the results are invalidated?

Thanks a bunch in advance!!

Yea most probably you have to do the test again.
Ircc will contact you within 45 to 60 days to redo the test again. It's a waiting game at this point.

Hi ,

I gave my test on 22nd and my wife on 26th , her status of the test says completed , whereas mine doesn’t say. Since I gave much earlier and was expecting to be updated . Have anyone experienced something like this who gave later with status updated and not for the earlier ones. Please let me know.

Are both of you from processing centers NGF or MTL? What i see is that MTL completes the test faster than Niagara..

You will get an email . Probably by Monday or Tuesday . If you won’t get also I believe u can try putting ur application number and uci in that test window . It should detect whether u r eligible to take or not.
