    hi po :) meron po sa inyo na nag-submit & > @jedh_g said:

    Hello guys, just completed my Citizenship test yesterday and it went well - passed! Take my advise...just listen to the podcast on “our common bond” before the day of your exam from their website. It will take you less an hour to complete for the 5 module tracks. Just do your part and pray. Good luck to all! Just waiting for the family’s pledge ceremony now. Cheers! 😊

    Hi Jedh_g, thanks for the tip. Can you also share what type of questions did they ask during the interview?

    @katniss you shall be fine as long as you cover the “our common bond” online material. For me, I listened to the audio podcast in several sections for your easy listening. I just internalised the part on the government parliamentary system for judicial, executory and legislation aspects which I think is the part where you need to focus on.

    Hi Jedh_g, thanks for the tip. Can you also share what type of questions did they ask during the interview?

    There are available practice test apps downloadable via ios or android that you can use for practice. The app made it easier for me to remember key items that will most likely appear in the exam.

    You can download the "Our Common Bond"(Testable part only) booklet on DHA website. The podcast is a good option too. There are many practice test apps online but were not officially released by DHA. You need to get all Australian Values questions correct otherwise you will fail the test even though you get a 75% or higher total score. All questions will come from the booklet.

    Marami sa app store. Just search for the word 'Citizenship' marami na lalabas. Ang ginamit ko from app store 'Australia Citizenship Test' yung name. Really helped a lot. Medyo tamad ako magbasa kaya di ako masyodo nag-rely sa 'Our Common Bond' na reading material.
