When you are fluent in Spanish, the College Level Examination Program (CLEP) is offering you the chance to earn three (or more) college credits when you pass the CLEP Spanish Language test.
This will save you a lot of money and time while you’re working hard towards a college degree. There are worldwide nearly 3,000 colleges and universities that are granting credit if you attain a sufficient score on the CLEP Spanish Language exam. Check here if your college is granting CLEP credit.
The Spanish Language CLEP exam is developed to measure your skills and knowledge typically acquired during the first two years in college. All study material that’s taught in these years is comprised into one single exam that covers both Levels 1 and 2 content. ACE (The American Council on Education) is recommending to award 6 credits for students that master Level 1 (a score of 50-62), and 9 credits when they master both Levels 1 and 2 (a score between 63 and 80).
The Spanish Language CLEP exam includes around 120 questions that must be answered within 90 minutes, and some of the questions are pre-test information questions that are not scored. The exam contains 3 separately timed parts. These 3 sections are weighted in a way that all questions contribute equally to your total score. Any time that a candidate will spend on providing personal details or on tutorials is added to his or her actual testing time.
