The common entrance exam - one single exam to access the Sciences Po Network

 

 

Students need only sit the Science Po Network common entrance exam for entry into the First Year of Sciences Po Institutes in Aix, Lille, Lyon (Lyon and Saint-Étienne campuses), Rennes, Saint-Germain-en-Laye, Strasbourg and Toulouse. It is held in the seven cities of the ScPo Network and in off-site centres in 6 overseas territories and abroad. 

Who can apply 

  • Students in their final year of secondary school (BAC 0) or school-leavers from the previous year (BAC+1 year of higher education) are eligible to apply. 
  • Qualifications equivalent to the BAC are also accepted. 

 

From now on, only the tests in the joint competition will be taken into account.

The tests: 

  • Contemporary issues (duration 3 hours, coefficient/weighting 3) with general revision themes: “Revolutions” and “The body”. A suggested reading list is available on the ScPo Network website. 
  •  History (duration 2 hours, coefficient/weighting 3) with the revision programme based on the core Terminale (final school year) curriculum of the Baccalauréat Général: “Power relations and political models from the 1930s to the present day” and “Political, social and cultural history of France since the 1930s”. A suggested reading list is available on the ScPo Network website. 
  •  Modern Languages (duration 1 hour, coefficient/weighting 2). This test (English, German, Spanish or Italian) will be based on comprehension exercises and an essay.

Comment se préparer au concours ?  

As the entrance exams largely follow the curriculum and methodology of the baccalauréat général, the ScPo Network does not recommend any particular preparatory courses. 

However, some students who find it difficult to work independently or who lack methodology can benefit from guidance and feedback on their work. 

To guide students through the vast range of preparatory courses of variable quality that are available, the ScPo Network has approved a specific online preparatory course for this competitive exam: 

  • Le dispositif Tremplin IEP garantit aux candidats une formation de très haute qualité spécifiquement adaptée aux exigences des concours.
