The CLT10 is an online preparatory exam for the CLT designed for 9th and 10th graders. It can be proctored by a parent at home or taken in-school at participating institutions. The test takes approximately two hours to complete, and it assesses English, mathematical, and critical reasoning skills. There is also an optional, ungraded, thirty-minute essay portion. Students receive their scores the Tuesday following the exam and can share them with an unlimited number of colleges and universities for free. The CLT10 provides students with the opportunity for recognition and, for top scorers, a scholarship to a CLT partner college.

The cost of the CLT10 is $44 and includes comprehensive Student Analytics. CLT offers financial assistance to qualifying families - if your circumstances make the cost of the test prohibitive, please fill out our Financial Assistance Request Form, or contact for more information.
