  1. Hello, I am a second year student and I outline to take the entrance exam to science po bordeaux in two years. I would like to start preparing myself slowly. But I don’t know what to start and what to work on. Advices ? Thank you in advance and good day

  3. Hello, Concerning the integrated courses and more particularly the test of composition in French from a file, would there be a particular methodology to follow? Cordially

  4. To answer your comment Camille, yes you can always but you cannot pass the general stream which recruits only at BAC0 but you can try by passing the integrated streams (France-United Kingdom, France-Portugal, France-Craibes, France -Spain, France-Morocco ..) look on the SCPOBX site everything is explained!

  6. Hello, Do you have examples of corrections for this year’s subject at Sciences Po Bordeaux? Thanks in advance

  7. @B: Good morning, Yes, it is true. Everything is explained in this article 2015 New Sciences Po Bordeaux competitions.

  8. @Tom: Hello Tom, No, it is not necessary to present all the documents of the corpus in the introduction. Using each document during development is enough. However, if you think it is an added value, you can also use the documents as an introduction.

  9. Hello, Is it true that there is no more geography test to integrate Science Po Bordeaux at French baccalauréat 0?

  10. Hello, Passing the contest of sciences po Bordeaux I have a question of methodology on the test of question of topicality. Is it necessary, as for a test of analysis of doc in history, to present the whole of the documents in the introduction? thanks in advance

  11. Hello, Excuse me for disturbing you, I wish to pass the competitive examination for admission to French baccalauréat 3 of the CPAG with a view to a preparation. To do this, I have to pass a general culture Dissertation competition, do you have any advice or books to advise me? I don’t know if this is where I should post my request but thank you in advance anyway, Best regards.

  12. Hello, Regarding the history test for the 2015 competition, do you have any predictions for this year? Since WW1 and the totalitarian regimes fell this year can I skip that? Thanks in advance

  13. I’m preparing the integrated Bordeaux course, I want to know, do you have the possibility in English of choosing between several texts and subjects? I’m a little lost here, seeing the last annal of 2014

  14. Hello, I was eligible for the Franco-German stream at Sciences Po Bordeaux after having had 9 in composition and 15 in languages. These marks surprise me a lot and I wanted to know if the marking was so severe as that, even to the point that one could be eligible with fairly low marks. If any of you have been eligible or admitted, could you let me know what marks you got? Thanks in advance.

  15. Well, well finally the birthday question fell yesterday! We had the right to the First World War and to Joseph Stalinist and Nazi totalitarianism… It goes to show that Sciences Po Bordeaux really manages to drive us crazy. In geography it is the territories that have fallen! With the revival of rural territories or border territories. The current question concerned the municipal elections, the role of the mayor and the latest developments. Finally the English test confused me personally… No economics, no politics, but a real baccalaureate subject, with the theme of the English debate on the non-gender that we should or should not grant to books and other toys that children use. Well, I’m waiting for you to give us some food for thought on all these subjects, just to get an idea of future results!

  16. @marie : Hello Marie, it is a safe bet that GM’s 100th anniversary will have no impact on tomorrow’s topic. There is therefore no particular need for this period. However, Sciences Po Bordeaux is the most unpredictable Sciences Po. In particular, they are quite daring to pose as a subject an identical subject or one which overlaps with the question of last year. So with Sciences Po Bordeaux, it is better not to make calculations or guesswork by dismissing exam questions that have recently fallen or by linking them to current events, everything is possible! Good luck, the big day is tomorrow! We hope that you will give us your impressions, and also the exam questions tomorrow so that we can write an answer key. Feel free to comment here, or by mail, or on Facebook. Good day to you Marie, and good last revisions The Academics in Politics team

  17. Hello, Regarding the history test for the French baccalauréat 0 entrance exam (Bordeaux) which is…. tomorrow… do you think we should bet on a subject such as the First World War? ? (We are celebrating its 100th anniversary this year and it is on the premiere program)

  18. hello, first of all I would like to thank you for all your advice! They are very helpful and will help me on Saturday! But as @Jean had said, would you already have the forecast for the contest? THANKS!

  19. @Clem64: For Sciences Po Bordeaux? In history, the Touchard the century of excesses, Berstein & Milza History of the 20th centuryIn general knowledge, books of general knowledge sheets, such as 100 general knowledge sheets, or Studyrama 250 general knowledge sheets in geography, mainly final year courses. In languages, reading articles from foreign newspapers on the internet. This article will give the keys to reviewing a foreign language and this one of the important headlines from the foreign press. It is a very good idea to start now for revisions!

  20. Hello, what books would you recommend to best prepare for next year’s science po competition?

  21. @Jean: Hello Jean, it is a good idea, which we are preparing. An article should be posted in the days, weeks to come. Thank you for your loyalty to (one year) and good revisions.

  22. Hello, The baccalaureate 0 admission tests are fast approaching, I admit that the stress is felt… Would you have, like last year, forecasts as to the exam questions likely to fall for this year? My sincere thanks 🙂

  23. @oscar : Hello Oscar, indeed there is not really any specific explanation on the internet for the Sciences Po Bordeaux Competition essays. We can simply tell you in a few words that the dissertation is the same, the methodology is the same, and that you just have to go much faster! That is to say, save time on the draft, or develop a little less, but try to get as close as possible to a dissertation like any Sciences Po competition. Some professors also advise doing only two parts for the history or geography at Sciences Po Bordeaux because of the time available. In practice, 3 parts are just as playable considering that in 2-part outlines, you have to subdivide into 2x2x2 = 8 subparts. In conclusion, the number of parts is left to the discretion, and outlines in 2 parts or 3 parts will be very well received no matter what, what matters is the content. Good luck with the exams, which are indeed particularly short, but this has another advantage: it improves student performance, and you will see that we think faster when we are limited in time! Have a nice day, The Academics in Politics team.

  24. Hello, Do you know a website or a document where would be indicated the methodology for the mini-dissertations of History and Geo specific to Spo Bordeaux? I searched, but found almost no info. Thanks in advance
