With a dozen masked comrades, many of whom wore a yellow gilet, he wanted to block the high school's access to his 1,500 students. Their requests: "End Parcoursup and high school reform"

At 8:30, first class time, "we were nine in front of the gates to prevent the passage "says the young woman. A bit of garbage cans and street furniture like a thin barricade are enough to create a huge group in front of the school. but "They were only 10 or 15" block, says a high school student, "a handful of fanatics", confirms Hélène Mathieu, dean of the establishment.

After several tens of minutes of tension, the situation deteriorates. While high school students joined their classes, many remained opportunists. The bullets are thrown at the security forces sent to the scene and fires are fired a few meters from the nearby Verhaeren College. At about 9:30, about twenty policemen load and flatten the sidewalk that marks the entrance to the school.

The gas is used to disperse the opportunists, delighted by this morning of overflowing. Near the entrance, teachers give the slogan: "Courses are canceled". "Too good!" They exclaimed two high school students, who like dozens of others, filming and broadcasting on the networks scenes of disorder that are growing around the structure that includes among its former students, Marine Le Pen. But at 11 o'clock, lessons are finally maintained and students call by e-mail and text message to join their class. The recreation ends.

According to the Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation, at the end of the Parcoursup procedure, 94.4% of the candidates had obtained a proposal on 21 September "any combined phase ". In other words, taking into consideration both the main stage of Parcoursup (from May 22nd to September) and the complementary phase (from 26 June to 21 September). This percentage is "equivalent to the one observed in the PDB last year ", points out the authors of the report (in fact, 94.5%).

More specifically, 79% of the candidates accepted a proposal. 15.5% of graduates preferred to resign from the procedure when they obtained a proposal (no comparison possible with the previous year). Therefore, despite the highest number of graduates who received a proposal this year (+ 8%), they have not always convinced them since almost 24% of them have resigned despite a positive proposal received. In total, 2.3% of the candidates resigned when they had nothing, compared to only 0.9% in 2017.
