CLT Exam: A True Education Inspires. Why Should A Test Be Any Different?


The CLT10 is a free online preparatory exam designed for 9th and 10th graders. It is user-friendly and accurate—not only can it be taken online at home (under supervision) and completed under two hours, but it also provides a rigorous measure of academic formation, accomplishment, and potential.
