Hello. This is a question for all teachers and educators here in France. My daughter is currently in 1er BAC L. She has been working hard, putting the hours in but not really getting a decent moyenne. We are looking at moving to a Bac STMG next year. But talking to some people it seems that swapping to Bac Tech will perhaps close doors for her a few years down the line. I am trying to get my head round the different Bacs. From what we can gather it will be easier to get a higher moyenne in the STMG, not quite so academic. It seems to be more project based, maybe more practical evaluations. Which may suit her better.
She may go to uni in Scotland, the idea appeals to her to travel a little with her studies. I spoke with a lot of the Sottish admissions officers and to do a BA journalism (she is considering it) they would accept either a Bac L or an STMG, as long as her moyenne in the humanities based subjects was high enough. So IF she continues along that path, then fine. At the end of the day, each course is just a stepping stone to the next. But that's 2 years down the line, a lot can change and she may decide she wants to study in France after all. Will she still be able to continue on with a DECENT BAC +2 or even +5 in a DECENT school if she wants to ??
