Latin and Advanced Placement Exams

The goal of the National Latin Exam is to provide an opportunity for students to demonstrate their knowledge of Latin and the Roman world on a test consisting of 40 multiple-choice questions. The exam focuses on the student’s ability to read and comprehend Latin as outlined in the American Classical League’s Standards for Classical Languages. The first section of the exam tests a student’s knowledge of grammar and vocabulary in the comprehension of Latin. The next section of the exam assesses a student’s knowledge of the Roman world as outlined in the syllabus. The questions on the final section are based on information contained in a passage in Latin. The Latin V-VI exam is based entirely on passages in Latin.
