When our numbers were all crunched, 7 out 13 passed the test meaning that around 47% failed, meaning Region 8 had a higher fail rate than the Xavier studies 33%.
Even though some of our contestants failed the test, many of those we talked to, insisted the test was in fact fair, and thought it was a good way to determine citizenship in the country.
If you would like to test yourself to find out if you have what it takes to be an American, there is an alternate version of the test on our website. You can find it here.
