What are the coefficients for the 2023 baccalaureate?

Advance and final tests

For the 2023-2024 session, the subject coefficients have changed. The final exams represent 60% of the final baccalaureate mark. Of the 100 coefficients, 60 would be obtained in the context of anticipated tests or final tests:

  • The anticipated trials of french baccalaureate at the end of first year (written, coefficient 5; oral, coefficient 5);
  • The two tests for specialty lessons followed in terminale (coefficient 16 for each of them).
  • The philosophy (coefficient 8 in general track, 4 in technological track);
  • The Grand oral baccalaureate (coefficient 10 in general track, 14 in technological track).

Continuous control coefficients

40 of these coefficients would be obtained with continuous monitoring calculated according to the student's general average, which takes into account the averages for the year of the final cycle school report cards.

  • All the disciplines of the common core which are not the subject of final tests (modern languages ​​A and B, history-geography, physical education and sports, scientific education for the general route, mathematics for the technological route) would have a coefficient of 6 (3 in 1ère, 3 in terminal);
  • Specialty education (abandoned at the end of first year) would have a coefficient of 8 (i.e. half of the specialty lessons kept by the candidate in the final year);
  • Moral and civic education will have a coefficient of 2 (1 in première, 1 in terminale). It contributes to the acquisition of the values ​​of the Republic and the secularism , and will thus be distinguished in the evaluation.

How to calculate your final baccalaureate mark ?

Distribution of the final mark of the general baccalaureate

For the 2023 baccalaureate, the principle of distribution of the final grade remains the same. For students in the general and technological baccalaureate, continuous assessment counts for 40% of the final grade : the average of the 1st grade reports has a coefficient of 5 just like the specialty education followed only in 1st grade. In this percentage, we also find history geography, modern language A and modern language B which have a coefficient of 6.33 and scientific education and PE which have a coefficient of 5 and which are linked to the final cycle 2022-2023. Finally, moral and civic education, which has a coefficient of 1, is also part of continuous assessment. L The final check counts for 60% of the final grade. The anticipated French tests have a coefficient of 5 for the oral and 5 for the written. The two specialty courses have a coefficient of 16 and philosophy a coefficient of 8. Finally, the Grand Oral has a coefficient of 10 in general. The Ministry of National Education offers on its website a painting allowing you to easily calculate our rating.
