As a result of the ongoing coronavirus emergency, Patrice Cellario, Minister of the Interior, said on Friday, April 3, that Monaco students will follow the example of France and complete the end of year Bac exams on the basis of continuous assessment of work done so far.

The only exception will be for the oral French exam for first year students, which will be held in late June or early July, if conditions allow. Applicants not obtaining the baccalaureate in July will be able to sit it again in September.

Mr Cellario paid tribute to the staff of the Department of National Education, Youth and Sports and to the entire teaching staff for their commitment and the work they are doing in order to ensure real educational continuity during the weeks of confinement.
