National Latin Exam

Important Announcement from the NLE Committee: Latin Teachers can administer exam
Salvete, omnes! The National Latin Exam Committee is pleased to announce that, beginning
with the 2019 exams, Latin teachers will be allowed to be the primary and even sole
administrator and supervisor when their students are taking the exam. We still encourage
teachers to enlist the aid of other teachers and school personnel as proctors and assistants,
particularly if you have a large number of students participating. Latin teachers will still be
required to designate a principal, headmaster, or other school official who will receive the exam
and keep it locked up until the time of the test. We are making this change after very many
requests from teachers and administrators and much deliberation and discussion from members
of the NLE Committee. If there are any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact
the NLE Office at 1-888-378-7721 or
