Covid-19: Entrance examinations rules adaptations

info entrance exams
Published on
26 March 2020

On Tuesday 24th March, the Minister of Higher Education, Research and Innovation Frédérique Vidal announced a set of measures that the Chapter of Management Schools proposes to follow and adapt to the specificities of the Grandes Ecoles of Management.

Post-baccalaureate entrance exam

Recruitment will be based on an application file only, following the current Parcoursup calendar. This concerns you if you wish to apply to our Bachelor in International Business via Passerelle Bachelor

  • The written and oral tests are replaced by:

    • - the French marks of Première (transcripts from last 3 terms),  
      - English marks for Première (transcripts from last 3 terms) and Terminale (transcripts from first 2 terms),
      - a general assessment of your Parcoursup file. 

    All these items are part of your Parcoursup file. You do not need to send any additional documents to the Passerelle Bachelor secretariat or to the selected schools. You do not need to make an appointment for the tests. 

    The schedule set by Parcoursup does not change. We remind you that you have until until April 2nd to pay your registration fees (120€ for non-scholarship holders), finalize your application, and confirm your interest in Parcoursup. The registration fee of 20€ per additional school is waived and will be refunded to candidates who have already made this payment.

This also concerns you if you wish to apply to our Grande Ecole Program via the Diversity Post-Baccalaureate procedure.

  • The written and oral tests are replaced by:  

    - the French marks of Première (transcripts from last 3 terms),  
    - English marks for Première (transcripts from last 3 terms) and Terminale (transcripts from first 2 terms),
    - a general assessment of your Parcoursup file.

    These items are part of your Parcoursup file but you will have to email us your transcript from the second term of Terminale before March 30th. 

    The schedule set by Parcoursup does not change. We remind you that you have until April 2nd to finalize your application and confirm your interest in Parcoursup.

    Contact GEM regarding the Diversity Post-Baccalaureate procedure

Post CPGE entrance exam

The written tests are postponed until mid-June and the oral tests are cancelled. This concerns you if you wish to apply to our Grande Ecole Program via the BCE entrance exam.

  • The Chapter of the Grandes Ecoles of Management defines new examination methods adapted to the exceptional circumstances related to COVID-19. In order to guarantee perfect fairness between candidates, the oral tests cannot be organized online. It was decided to cancel them in everyone’s best interest: students and their families who needed to be quickly informed, the preparatory classes in charge of preparing and accompanying them, the schools which would have had difficulty in soliciting members of professional juries on return from several weeks of confinement, and so on.

    Concerning the written tests, the Chapter hopes that they will be held in the usual places and conditions from mid-June. The competition banks have been contacted to verify the feasibility of this arrangement: we will inform you as soon as possible of the solutions adopted. Within this framework, the schools will rank the candidates on the basis of the 30 coefficients. SIGEM will therefore be held on this basis only.

    Contact GEM regarding the Grande Ecole Program

Admissions based on Titles

The selection procedures are under study (application file and/or written tests), the oral tests are cancelled. This concerns you if you wish to apply to our Grande Ecole Program via Passerelle Grandes Ecoles.

  • For the same reasons as those mentioned above, the Chapter of the Grandes Ecoles proposes that selections be made only on the basis of application files and/or written tests online.

    Passerelle Grandes Ecoles is under deliberation in order to choose the most suitable format. We will inform you as soon as possible of the solutions selected.
