So I have just started using tocloft in LaTeX for my report in order to generate a list of equations. The list works fine and it does what I need it to, but the only issue so far is that the heading 'List of Equations' is in much bigger font than the other headings for 'Contents' , ' List of Figures' etc... How can I change this?

Here is the code I have for the list.

\newcommand{\listexamplename}{List of Equations}
\par\noindent\text{Equation \theexample. #1}

    Welcome to TeX.sx! I guess that \usepackage[titles]{tocloft} may solve the issue.

Use the titles option:
