Comparison

The Classic Learning Test (CLT) is a college entrance exam that it is accepted by colleges and universities, similar to the SAT and ACT tests. However, there are a few differences between the CLT and those other tests. Among standardized college entrance exams, the CLT provides the most accurate and rigorous measure of academic formation, accomplishment, and potential. Students take this two-hour exam at a local testing center and are able to see their test results the same day. Results may be sent directly to any of the colleges listed on our site. We've provided a brief comparison chart as well as the scoring comparisons between the three major tests.
