About the National Latin Exam
Monmouth College Students were joined by over 131,000 students from all fifty states and nine foreign countries (including Australia, Canada, England, Italy, Japan, New Zealand, Switzerland, Zimbabwe, and, for the first time, Poland). Participation in the Exam has increased each year since its inception in 1978, when approximately 6,000 students enrolled.
Exams are given for Latin I through Latin VI. Students in each level answer 40 questions: 20 on Latin grammar; 15 on mythology, Roman life, history, geography, and derivatives; and five questions based on a reading passage in Latin. The time limit for the exam is 40 minutes.
The National Latin Exam is offered each year during the second week in March. Monmouth College is one of only five colleges to administer the exam to its students.
