The philosophy of the National Latin Exam is predicated on providing every Latin student the opportunity to experience a sense of personal accomplishment and success in his study of the Latin language and culture. This opportunity exists for each individual student since, on the National Latin Exam, one is not competing with a fellow student on a comparative basis, but is evaluated solely on his/her own performance on the exam. The basic purposes of the NLE are to promote the study of Latin and to encourage the individual student.
