They were 160 last year, they will be a little less this year. 148 baccalaureate holders remain unassigned at the end of the Parcoursup procedure, advanced this Tuesday the Ministry of National Education and that of Higher Education. The vast majority of them are vocational high school students. Faced with this situation, these candidates were able to request the Commission d'accès à l'enseignement supérieur (CAES) of their academy to help them find training.
"The reduction in the duration of the admission phase and its increased efficiency have allowed the CAES to take charge more quickly of baccalaureate holders without a proposal this year," the ministries wrote in their statement. The CAES remain mobilized with universities and territorial actors, partners of the rectorats, until the end of October to offer them a suitable solution, they stress.
More than 9 out of 10 baccalaureate holders with a proposal
In total, 93.5% of baccalaureate holders who made wishes received at least one admission proposal, an increase compared to 2022, despite the higher number of enrollees this year. According to a survey conducted by the CSA institute for the two ministries (with 1,000 new baccalaureate holders on their perception of Parcoursup), waiting times are considered satisfactory for 73% of high school students, an increase of 5 points compared to 2022.
76% of them are satisfied with the answers they received from the trainings. On the other hand, 83% of respondents consider the procedure to be stressful.

Over the past year, both departments have been working to reduce candidates' sense of expectation and stress by generating proposals to more applicants sooner. "The process of continuous improvement of Parcoursup will continue in 2024," they say.
As last year, the Parcoursup website will be accessible in simple consultation from December 20 to access the training offer available in 2024. From January 17, students will be able to start registering and making their wishes on the platform, until March 14 at midnight. They will have until April 3 to complete their vows and confirm them.
