Parcoursup the test of fire

"Crash test", "fiasco announced", "risk of overheating"... Certain trade union organizations of secondary and higher education are predicting the worst for the new system Parcoursup. What give cold sweats to the bachelors waiting for the answers to their wishes made a few weeks ago. The verdict is imminent. As soon as Tuesday, may 22, the first results will begin to fall. "Finally, if all goes well, because one is not immune to a bug that technique !", attack Hervé Christofol, general secretary of Snes-FSU, and a staunch opponent of the law of Orientation and student success (ORE) which amends the terms and conditions of access to the university. "When the high school students will begin to have the first negative feedback, the disappointment will be great", stated he.

In the entourage of the minister of higher Education, Frédérique Vidal, it is said, on the contrary, "totally serene" : "Until here, everything went perfectly. This little game is to create a collective angst is irresponsible !". Those who fear that the high school students disappointed together with the protesters that currently prevent the holding of examinations, responded : "the motion of The facs is running out of steam, it is in the process of shutting down. Everything goes back in order."

According to the ministry, all is under control. It is precisely in order not to repeat the mistakes of last year - the complexity of the platform, results in opaque and above all, use of the draw in some channels under voltage - that rue Descartes had announced in November last year, the replacement of the track system post-bac (APB) by the new Parcoursup. "We're going to put the human in the orientation process", promised Frédérique Vidal. In practice, the number of vows formulated by the students has been reduced to ten (compared to twenty-four previously). A list, in no order of preference to avoid calculations "puzzles" which indulged the students in the past. Other news : aspiring students had to write a letter of motivation - officially called "projects of training motivation" - for each sector applied for, while the schools provide, them, a "form future" with the notes, the assessments of the teachers on each, and the opinion of the head of school on the wishes.

in An unequal system or empowering ?

"what even accentuate a little more the inequality !", regrets Fanny Capel, president of the collective of teachers Save the letters. "Some students come from backgrounds more disadvantaged, have not had their parents behind them to write these letters of motivation. All do not have the means to highlight potential language travel, internships, or other personal experiences of this type," continues the professor of literature at the lycée Paul-Eluard de Saint-Denis. And the trade unionist Hervé Christofol chimed in : "It is the prime early ! A student who has been able to have an error of course in 1st, even if it is caught up in the terminal, may be censored in its orientation."

To the defenders of the new system, it will, on the contrary, had the merit of encouraging candidates to reflect on their true aspirations, to better inform upstream and to assess their chances of success in the training selected. "In the fields of study Staps (Sciences and techniques of physical activities and sports, editor's note), very requested but where the failure rate is very high in the first year, the information on the reality of education is better placed, believed in the corridors of the ministry. Many have realized that it is not enough to be good at sports to succeed." A result of this better communication in general : applications for registration in the BTS and in the technological sectors would be, after the close of Frédérique Vidal, far more important than anticipated. "This is why we will try to offer additional places".

at each university, its internal kitchen...

In total, about 6.3 million applications in the superior, made by more than 800 000 young people, passed through the close scrutiny of Parcoursup. On the basis of the skills required in each of the sectors, set at national level, each university has developed its own classification system. At least, those particularly "turned on". Some of the commissions responsible for considering the wishes of future students, have focused on the so-called "card-future" provided by the high schools of origin, others have examined more carefully the letters of motivation, or even consigned themselves to their own system of algorithms... still others have simply refused to choose, opposed to the principle of Parcoursup and the famous "selection at the entrance of the university". "In short, everyone has his own kitchen-house and the high school students who will suffer the refusal will not necessarily know why," says Hervé Christofol. While the ministry of higher Education plays the "transparency" by making public the algorithm of the national operation of the software Parcoursup as soon as this Monday, the eve of the first results. The settings that are used locally by the different formations to decide between the candidates will, however, not well-known...

as Soon as Tuesday, so, the much-awaited answers will begin to fall. Four possibilities for each vow : "yes", "no", "yes" (that is to say "yes" provided you follow a module upgrade), or "pending". What will happen if a student only gets refusal ? "There's bound to be that day, even if, for the time being, we can't give exact numbers", says Jérôme Teillard, project manager in charge of Parcoursup to the ministry. "Will be potentially affected those who have returned one or two of the vows, or who have chosen that the chains under tension", he says. A commission of access to higher education, put in place in each Academy, will then be in charge to accompany these high school students left empty-handed, promises-on.

A "torment" that will last until September 5,

"But be careful, it would be foolish to focus only on the results of the 22 may, which are only a point of departure," explained the ministry teams. Unlike last year where the system PDB included three "grand tours", the results will fall this time over the water. As soon as a candidate accepts a place, he will be forced to release the others (left to accept another wish waiting later). And so on... until 5 September. "Instead of stressing it three times, the students stresseront so sometimes all summer !, regrets Clear Guéville, one of the spokespersons for the SNES-FSU. Those who do not have the means to wait for the last moment to organize and be able to settle the potentially costly issues of housing, travel will be obliged, either to give up or to turn to private courses."

Anxious to reassure students and parents concerned, the Prime minister Edouard Philippe is committed, a few days ago, to create new spaces in the upper, "where necessary", according to requests, by the end of June. But it will not, however, do miracles, including the famous lines "under voltage" (psycho, medicine, law, Staps, etc). In other words, not sure that the promised resources will be sufficient to always avoid the access of disappointment and anger in high school students stayed up here, compared to their elders of the universities, rather docile and discreet.
