2019 National Latin Exam Results
Co-sponsored by the American Classical League and the National Junior Classical League, the National Latin Exam (NLE) is a test given annually to Latin students (grades 7-12) across the United States and around the world. The NLE is not meant to be a competition but rather an opportunity for students to receive reinforcement and recognition for their accomplishments in the classroom.
The exam is a 40-question, multiple-choice test (45-minute time limit) with questions on grammar, comprehension, mythology, derivatives, literature, Roman life, history, geography, oral Latin, and Latin in use in the modern world.
Depending upon their score, students may earn certificates, medals, and may even qualify for scholarships. This year, more than 131,000 students from all fifty states and 12 countries participated this year.
