Why do you think Charlotte finished her exams already? Even, why are you all so sure that Charlotte is still studying? Holiday in France starts on July 1st...

I don't know why she's so sure, but it depends on your level. Some of my friends at uni already finished and I finish only Tuesday

(Hey guys, I’m not the kind of person who will spread silly rumours ! But I’ve learned my lesson, in the future I will immediately mention an official source.)

I don’t think it, I know it because a friend of mine, who’s in khâgne as well, sent me all excited a message that it was finally over. :) And if you don’t believe me, go and check the site of the ENS : http://www.ens.fr/concours/Organisation/Calendriers.htm
The answer to CasiraghiTrio’s question : As you can read on that site, she will get her results of the written exams on the 27th of June. If she passed these, then she’s called ‘admissible’ and she has to take the oral exams and if she passed these as well, then she’s finally accepted to the ENS. From now until the 27th, she will probably be preparing the oral examination. So let’s keep our fingers crossed because there are so many participants and so few places !

No wonder Char and Felix have no time to go to Monaco now and hang out during the Grand Prix. It will be wonderful if both of them get in at ENS but the chances are slim, so even if one gets in or neither gets in, they will either try again next year or do something else just as valuable. In America, they would surely get into any school they wanted because that is the way it works here. When you have connections, in the US, you get in. But at ENS, which doesn't have "benefactors", the professors who decide who gets in aren't likely to even know who Charlotte Casiraghi is. So it will be down to pure merit.

If Charlotte does get into ENS with ENS reputations like that, then all I can say is "WOW' and start wondering if I can be like that also......:(

Charlotte seems to be so wonderful. She is beautiful--she could lead a Paris Hilton life but instead ,she leads such a dignified life.
She has a passion to learn and has such a respect for education. Charlotte is elegant and has such a talent for horse riding--she could train for the olympics if she wanted... She is devoted to her little sister and a supportive sister to her brothers.
I sure wish her Uncle could find someone like her.

To get into ENS is something wonderful, but there are universities with a very good level too. I know personally some people who would have deserved a lot to get into ENS but who failed twice or three times at the exam.
Furthermore, it would surprise me if we see Charlotte tomorrow at Monaco: if she's "admissible" and goes to oral exam, she'll need to have worked a lot between the written and the oral exam. There are preparations to the oral part currently in all the french khâgnes.

Oops, I forgot my source: myself, as a former khâgne-student.

She seems to have a brilliance of mind, or at least a craving to have it, but her passion for equestrian sports may not have ever been Olympic-worthy. Her old show jumping results were usually quite average, nothing particularly stellar. She was good, but not great. Sometimes she had a shining moment, such as winning the Stars race, the charity jockey event in Fontainebleau, in 2001, or coming in second place in the Friends Cup at the Monte Carlo jumping in 2002. But those were isolated instances and by no means proved consistent throughout her equestrian "career", if you can call it a "career." It was more like a hobby, albeit a very passionate and devoted hobby. I am not intending to diminish her accomplishments. Far from it. She was very talented at show jumping, but certainly not in the league of Olympians like Athina or Doda or the Roziers or Princess Haya of Jordan. She was not even quite up to par with Valentine's league. She was just a very good amateur. That was always my impression, anyway.

Come on people, I know this is again off-topic stuff but anyway. It looks you all know everything about her, and it looks you know more about her than herself! Since when does everybody know where she is studying? Even, why do you think she's studying?

And about the school level in France: I'm sorry to say but French education is on a low level. You've indeed a few very good schools and universities, but that's it. If we can compare it with Belgium e.g. that we've to say that Belgian students are much better prepared and educated. And for the best univ education we still have to go to the USA (Harvard, Yale, Stanford, MIT,...)!

How do we know? Because papers like Point de Vue are reporting Charlotte is studying in a very good khâgne in Paris. Having done a khâgne myself, having studied for the same exams, I know where are the very good khâgnes in Paris and how difficult are the exams.

Oh, there’s Mister Critical again. :) I certainly don’t pretend to know everything about Charlotte. As for where she’s studying, last year we saw pictures of her leaving lycée Fénelon several times and Point de Vue, which is in general a reliable source, mentioned as well that she’s indeed studying at Fénelon. I admit that we can’t know for sure where she’s studying this year. She could have changed to another lycée but that she’s studying, is for sure because her godmother said that in an interview to Point de Vue during the Bal de la Rose. As for her applying to the ENS, I won’t answer for personal reasons but I don’t pretend that she didn’t present herself for other concours. To place all your confidence in only one concours, isn’t indeed a good idea. Finally, as for your statements about Belgian education, I think (the following is my personal opinion, so I understand if you don’t agree with me) Belgian universities are indeed better than the average French ‘fac’ but certainly not better than the grandes écoles. It’s tougher to get in a grande école (well, that’s logical because everyone can enter freely almost every Belgian university) and from what I hear and read, prépas are really difficult. You can’t have a lot of extra-curricular activities (Charlotte, for example, dropped the riding competitions). I study at the KULeuven, which is among the best universities in Belgium (although I say so myself), and believe me, you can easily party on here till november and april and still pass your exams with reasonable grades.

Edit : Sorry Danielane, I repeat a bit what you're saying but seems that we posted at the same time. :)

What's your source about this statement?

In fact, khâgnes students don't have much choice. The khâgne prepares to only one concours (and is for that very different of scientific or economic preparatory classes). So if you failed, you have nothing, but you can get into university. After two years of khâgne, you can get into university's third year. After three year of khâgne, I got into university's fourth year (but you need to have some university exams). I didn't into ENS, but I'll very soon achieve a master in the Sorbonne.

You can take Sciences Po exam but you'll need to prepare it by yourself, which means lot of work added to the lot of work of the khâgne.
It seems there's now specifics khâgnes for Sciences Po, but not in Paris. The famous parisian khâgnes' main goal is ENS.
