[Updated May 19, 2023 12:41 PM] The 2023 college patent exams are fast approaching! They will start on Monday, June 26 with French, which will take place in the morning and will, as usual, be in two parts. There will first be a first part devoted to grammar, written comprehension and dictation between 9 a.m. and 10:30 a.m., then a second on writing between 10:45 a.m. and 12:15 p.m. What kind of subjects to expect on D-Day?

It is impossible to establish a precise list of texts or works that could constitute the French test for the 2023 patent, because there is no common corpus for all college students, whether they study in a professional or general series. . The Ministry of Education gives teachers proposals for works for each theme studied during the year, but they are not compulsory. As a reminder, the French program in 3e revolves around four main themes and one complementary theme. Find them below, with examples of works for each theme.

The French program in 3e revolves around four main themes and one complementary theme. The works on which the French test for the 2023 college patent will be based will therefore necessarily fall into one of these themes. Find a short presentation of these, as well as examples of works that the Ministry of Education recommends that teachers have their students study for each of them. Please note, however, that these are only recommendations, and that there is therefore no certainty that it will be on these works that the students will work on June 26.

The French patent 2022 test took place on June 30, and our partner Studyrama published a corrected to specify the outline of the answers that had to be given and the references to be called in the copy. Find below corrections made by teachers:

The full 2022 patent French subject for the general series was provided to us by our partner Studyrama. From dictation to writing exercises and grammar questions, the entire subject of the 2022 French patent test is available. The candidates worked on the text "The Mosquito and the Lion", taken from Aesop's Fables, and wondered about the impact of literary and artistic works on readers and their behavior.

Candidates for the DNB 2022 in the pro series also took their French test on June 30, but with a specific subject. They too lent themselves to the exercise of dictation, on an extract from the novel Number Six by Véronique Olmi. The rest of the test also focused on comprehension and grammar, with a series of questions on the same text. Check out the corresponding French patent 2022 subject in pro series below, provided by our partner Studyrama:

Dictation is one of the keys to the French college certificate test. Here is the French dictation of the 2022 edition of the DNB for the general series. As a reminder, during the patent, the dictation is worth 10 points and the students have 10 minutes to complete it. The text for the 2022 edition was taken from Aesop's Fables (7th-6th century BC)

According to Aesop, Fables, 7th-6th century BC.

Candidates for the DNB 2022 in the professional path were also entitled to their dictation on another text of course. Their text was taken from Number Six by Véronique Olmi, a work from 2002.

According to Véronique Olmi, Number six, 2002

During the written French test for the secondary school certificate, pupils from mainland France have three hours to prove themselves. This consists first of a part "grammar and linguistic skills - comprehension and skills of interpretation and dictation", from 9 am to 10.30 am. It is, after a dictation, to carry out the explanation of an extract of literary text and exercises of grammar and rewriting. After a short break, follows a second part dedicated to writing, from 10:45 a.m. to 12:15 p.m.

The first part, evaluated on 50 points, is based on a literary text sometimes accompanied by an image and consists of answering a series of questions on grammar, language comprehension and interpretation. Twenty minutes are dedicated to dictation, scored out of 10 points, of approximately 600 characters for students in the general series and 400 characters for the professional series. The order of the following questions, out of 40 points, is not insignificant: the first are rather short and address specific points of grammar while the following call for more developed and written answers based on quotations from the excerpt from the text provided to study.

After a short break of fifteen minutes, the students find their copy for the last part of the test: writing on a subject of invention or reflection of their choice, and on which the last 50 points are played.

At the patent, the value of each test is not calculated on the basis of a coefficient, but with a counting of points. As a reminder, you can obtain a maximum of 800 points during the patent. A minimum of 400 out of 800 points is required to pass. Then, when you collect more points, you can earn mentions: you need at least 480 for the mention fairly well, at least 560 for the mention well, and 640 for the mention very well. The French test can be worth up to 100 points, so it is very important.

The results of the 2023 patent will be revealed at the beginning of July, on dates differing slightly according to the academies. It is expected that the results of the Brevet des collèges will be released between Friday July 7 and Tuesday July 11, 2023. And after the results, let's celebrate the students with the best marks! A republican patent graduation ceremony is organized at each start of the school year for the winners in their college. The academies, in conjunction with schools and local elected officials - mayors, departmental councillors, etc. - organize, each year, an official presentation of the diplomas obtained the previous year.

According to the official National Education website, this ceremony "brings together the educational community and elected officials around the students who complete their common school career". Its usefulness is to "state the essential role of the school in the Republic and to congratulate the pupils who have obtained their first diploma". National Education specifies that this makes it possible to erect "models of success".
