Monday, March 20, high school students will take their specialty tests. Most unions denounce exams that occur too early in the year.
When leaving the Madeleine Michelis high school in Amiens (Somme), the baccalaureate is in all the minds of the final year students. The two tests which arrive on Monday March 20 will count for one third of their final mark. “I think it’s advantageous, because we can choose our specialties, so subjects where we feel more comfortable, more interested”believes Ayman el Ghazali, a final year student.
A date too early?
Until Monday, classes continue. Difficult however to concentrate before the deadline. “A little bit of apprehension, obviously. We find, I speak for myself but I think that everyone (agrees), it’s too early as the baccalaureate approaches, in addition we don’t have had a week of revision”, recognizes Charlotte Bourgeois, a final year student. The tests will also be taken into account in their Parcoursup file, and their future after high school. For several unions, passing the baccalaureate in March is too early.
