    Romania is a magical place :rofl:

    (Serious side note: I have no idea, maybe because we BS our way through every single school subject and only study a few in depth. Or we make it through just because this is Ro-f***king-mania since I have no other explanation other than it being Ro-f***king-mania. :rofl:)

    Interesting OwO I would have chosen humanities by far :yep:



    Troisième is equivalent to the UK year 9.

    Psychology was mandatory :yep: (There is no such thng as chosen subjects; everything is mandatory. Only one's specialisation and school can affect what subjects the person will study in high school and they are 99% the same everywhere.) That being said, it was full of pseudo-psychological things like the four humours, sadly. (My psychology GCSE and AS-level were awesome, though.)

    8 hours of philosophy for the science filière? Are you kidding me? My specialisation is philology (a specialisation under the humanities profile in which we focus on languages, history, geography, and social sciences) and I only have 2 hours of philosophy a week...

    Does the government not think that, uh, maybe, just maybe, those philosophy hours could be spent on more relevant subjects like mathematics, biology, chemistry, physics, and computer science?

    So S is science and maths.
    L is science.
    ES is in the middle (both humanities and science).

    Is that it?

    L is litterature
    S is science and maths
    ES is economics


    In S they have 4 hours of philosophy...
    I'm in L so I have 8 hours of philosophy which is normal but still very hard. And it's not even about the history of philosophy. Nope. We have to actually explain extracts and write dissertations!!!! I have a paragraph of Hegel for Monday but i want to die
    And we don't do computer science, i would love it toooooooooo!!!! Our subjects are kinda basic

    Our last education ministers have been really REALLY bad, they make really bad decisions so we don't expect anything good from the government.

    There was already a selection before, but it wasn't legal. Now it is.
    I don't understand why they didn't do it for Master 1 though???

    Because the Communists student unions do not want to.

    Oh, I see! I understand now :yep:

    Same here :rofl: I have two assignments due in on Thursday but I have so many things to do that I have no idea when I will finish them

    I like John Stuart Mill, though! :love:

    Four hours of philosophy for the science filiere. Good job, government! :yy:

    When does school start/end?

    Also, could you (or any fellow Frenchman here) please speak about France a bit more? I think the OP would be interested in general things about France too :yep: (e.g. Did you know that in the UK, you buy bus tickets from the bus driver when you get on the bus, and that when you leave the bus, you thank the bus driver? Of course this is normal for the UK, but where I come from, we do not even SEE the bus drivers, let alone buy tickets from and thank them...)

    Oh well school sometimes start at 8 and end at 18 but it depends. However, prepare youself, your day could be that long.

    Sure I can speak about France a bit more but I live in Paris so that's a little but different.
    About buses, some people say hello but most don't. If you do need to take the bus everyday, we have what we call the pass navigo and if you're a student you have a discount.

    There are so many things to tell, what do you want to know?
