Questioned by 20 minutes Wednesday, February 12, Education Minister Jean-Michel Blanquer details the details of this exam scheduled for 2021.

<p class = "canvas-atom canvas-text Mb (1.0em) Mb (0) – sm Mt (0.8em) – sm" type = "text" content = "In this article, the Minister informs us that the great oral will last 40 minutes: 20 minutes of oral and 20 minutes of preparation. "It will relate to a specialty education that the student has chosen in the final year class," specifies Jean-Michel Blanquer. & Nbsp; "data-reactid =" 23 "> In this article, the Minister tells us that the spoken word will last 40 minutes: 20 minutes of oral and 20 minutes of preparation. "It will relate to a specialty education that the student has chosen in the final year", specifies Jean-Michel Blanquer.

The 20 minutes of presentation are divided into three parts. For 5 minutes, the student argues on a question "prepared during the year with his teachers". Then 10 minutes are devoted to a discussion with the jury – composed of "two teachers from different disciplines, at least one of whom is in one of the student's specialties". Finally, for 5 minutes, the student explains "how the chosen question sheds light on his study plan".

“Physical issue”

Throughout this test, students must be standing. The Minister of Education explains that “in the oral, there is a physical issue, of self-presentation. However, some young people find it difficult to control their posture. This is an opportunity to teach them this way of landing. It’s a complete test: physical education is also concerned with speaking, as well as practicing theater or singing ”.

The coefficient for this test will be 10, which may frighten the candidates, but for Jean-Michel Blanquer, “to assign a large coefficient to this test is to send a message to the entire school system on the importance of public speaking ”. He also sweeps away fears of a socially discriminating test, believing on the contrary that this exam “precisely makes it possible to compensate for the inequalities between pupils by preparing everyone for the success of the exam. Because you can come from a very disadvantaged background and be very comfortable speaking, or be from a privileged family and be very shy. ”

All the details of the grand oral appear this Thursday, February 13 in the official bulletin.
