7 How is your child prepared for the exam?
Throughout the school year teachers in Math, French and History/Geography teach the skills and the knowledge the students need for the exam. They also give examples of documents or questions that could be on the exam and have them practice them. A few days before the final exam we organize training sessions : each class has 4 hours on each topic to review the main ideas and the methodology. There is not an “Art History” class. The content required for the exam is taught during the school year by the History, French, Foreign languages, Fine arts, sometimes also the Sciences teachers. The student will be instructed on materials available on the website to help prepare the Art History part of the exam:

8 How can you best help your child?
By checking regularly his/her homework. To be well prepared students should not wait the end of the school year to learn or review their lessons. By being supportive. At the end of the school year the stress can increase a lot! You can buy “Annales”, books that are study guides for the exam You can encourage your child to review the previous years’ tests on our website:
