Further information

You can register and formulate wishes from January 17, but there is no need to rush: you are not obliged to register and formulate your wishes on January 17.

There are no advantages for applicants who apply early. Even if you don't have to wait until the last minute to do so, the most important thing is to formulate your wishes before the deadline, i.e. Thursday March 14, 2024, 11:59pm Paris time.

After this date, you won't be able to make any more wishes (except for apprenticeships, for which there is no deadline.

You have more time to complete your file and confirm your wishes, you have until April 3 2024, 23:59, Paris time to do so. 

You can formulate up to 10 wishes in the schools of your choice, without ranking them.

For certain courses, you can formulate sub-topics and thus apply to several establishments for the same course and this will be counted as a single wish. You can choose one or more establishments, without having to rank them.

Example: you can apply for a BTS "Management commercial opérationnel" or a CPGE (classe prépa) "MPSI" offered by several different establishments. The choice of course will be counted as 1 single wish, and the establishments you choose from among those offering this course will correspond to sub-wishes.
