Parcoursup's higher education access platform allows high school and reorientation students to register. They will receive their first wishes responses on Thursday, after a year that was still disrupted due to the Covid. At 7 p.m. on Thursday, the first responses to the wishes of approximately 936,000 applicants (compared with 931,000 last years) will be available.
According to Ministry of Higher Education figures, there are 622,000 high school students, 186,000 students who wish to reorient themselves and 95,000 students returning to studies. There are also 33,000 foreign students. There are several options for each course. You can be accepted ("yes") or refused ("no") depending on whether the university course requires that the student follow an educational or personal support course.
After two years of disruption, Parcoursup is now again facing the Covid's consequences. The 2022 session saw the first attempt at the written specialty tests. These tests were a result of reforming the baccalaureate, and must appear on Parcoursup. They were delayed from March to May because of the pandemic and could not be included in student files. The files instead indicate the averages for specialties during the three terms Premiere and the two preceding Terminale.
As every year, not all decisions are made on Thursday. The answers to the questions are distributed until July 15th. The platform is updated every day and candidates can get a new proposal to train for any training that is available. Around 90,000 candidates did not have a proposal by the end 2021. 591 had no assignment by the end the complementary phase that lasts until September.
