Dear S7 Parents,


Today is the first day of Baccalaureate 2019 Written Exams.  We would like to take this opportunity to wish our students the best of luck over the coming weeks!  We have done very well on the exam in recent years, and we can only hope this trend will continue.


We are writing to inform you that, in the unlikely event that your student encounters a problem on one of his/her examinations, INTERPARENTS and the local Parents Associations have again launched our online Bacc Support Platform allowing parents or students to register complaints on specific Baccalaureate Examinations.  The service is linked directly from webpage:   Attached INTERPARENTS also provides an explanatory packet outlining the necessary steps to take if something should go wrong on the Bacc.


One should not underestimate the immense efforts that are made each year to assure the quality of the exam papers and to ensure that all goes smoothly.  Considering the number of papers, problems with exams are rare.  Nevertheless just in case, the Parents Association and INTERPARENTS stand ready to help.  Information submitted through the system goes directly to us parent representatives in the PA and INTERPARENTS.  Complaints are then collated, analysed and prioritised in order to bring pressing issues to the attention of the General Secretariat with maximum efficiency. We will do our best to keep you informed of all developments. Please remember that INTERPARENTS and the Parents Association are both volunteer organisations so we ask that you be patient with any glitches that arise.


In closing, we hope that our families have smooth sailing over the next few weeks.  Still, if for any reason you do have concerns, do not hesitate to contact us.

Kind regards,

Delphine Braun

PA President
