The test is based on the Discover Canada study guide. The written test consists of 20 questions that you have to answer within 30 minutes. You have to answer at least 15 questions correctly (so you are allowed 5 incorrect answers). The test is multiple-choice, which means you will be presented with 4 possible answers for each question (unless it is a True/False question with only two possible answers) and you will need to pick the best answer.
IRCC (Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada) will send you a letter informing you where and when to take your test.
The test is usually written, but in some cases it might be oral and take place in the form of an interview with a citizenship officer. IRCC will decide if your test is written or oral, depending on their various criteria.
