- Introduction: The National Latin Exam is a prestigious and short standardized test to assess students’ understanding of the Latin language. Students have 40 multiple choice questions to answer within 45 minutes. Students with any level of expertise can participate in any of the seven levels. There are seven exam levels, which can be confusing for students who are not sure which exam is appropriate for them to take. Fortunately, the National Latin Exam has released a guide to help students better navigate through the exam levels.
- Competition Format: Students can participate in any of the seven levels: Introduction to Latin Exam, Beginning Latin Exam (or Latin I), Intermediate Latin Exam (Latin II), Intermediate Latin Reading Comprehension Exam (Latin III), Advanced Latin Prose Exam (Latin III/IV Prose), Advanced Latin Poetry (Latin III/IV Poetry), and Advanced Latin Reading Comprehension Exam (Latin V/VI+).
- Eligibility: Students who are enrolled in Latin or have completed a Latin course during the current academic year. Students are only allowed to take ONE exam annually, and the exam level must correspond to their current level of Latin at the time of the exam.
