Don't worry just yet as many people only get into Les grandes Ecoles like Science Po after doing 2 years at a lesser school and then writing the exam.So Charlotte has time yet.

I'm sorry if she didnt pass the exam, but i dont think she would have expected to pass with all the activities she has been involved lately. One that wants to pass that kind of test, needs to get full time concentrated and she didnt seem to be that way. Hopefully she will not loose the interest in her studies. :(

Does this mean she didn't get high enough marks on her exams?

Yes, that means she wasn't in the best students.

I won't explain it once more as it's not the right thread, but Charlotte has now two chances only to write the exams, and it doesn't work the way you described it. There's no lesser school to get into the ENS.

No doubt needed. She did participate in the concours. Here's an official source : http://www.interens.org/cgi-bin/sear...sel_pers=41343
Is anyone else having trouble with this link? I know Charlotte isn't going to get in but I would still like to see this. This link doesn't work, though.:(

I wonder if she would consider coming to school in the US like her uncle did?

That would be nice, but I was hoping she would get into ENS because that seems to be what she really wanted. Danielane warned us awhile back not to get our hopes up, but I still did. Poor Charlotte. She's a perfectionist. She might be hard on herself, though I hope she doesn't let it make her feel too bad because many excellent students don't get into ENS. She can't even be happy for Felix because he didn't get in either. I wonder if she will try again in 2007. You can take the written exam an unlimited # of times, right? or at least twice, I think.

I didn't know both of them were trying to get in. Well, at least they have each other to console one another.

The latter part that you mention, is designed to be the more difficult track, according to a friend of mine, as this is designed to weed out the students who didn't perform well. How does anyone feel about her academic performance or academic future? It seems that the family is evolving into a somewhat more "contemporary" model family in which acadamics and ethics are placed on the old back burner, and this out of necessity owing to their need to be seen at certain times and places, as well as their need for some(?) privacy.

I just hope that the media does not make a story out of Charlotte not getting to the oral exam level. It would probably be torture for her to see her "rejection" on the front page of BUNTE or something else. It seems like the sort of thing BUNTE would do and I'm hoping they won't do it. Let's hope this passes without any mention in the press, quietly and unnoticed. We should stop discussing it out of respect for her feelings.

That would be cruel if they turned it into a cover story. A blurb in the gossip section would be bad, but not AS bad, but they definitely shouldn't do a cover story.

Where did you see that Félix was taking the exam too?
yeah I think you can take the written exam twice, maybe she will try again next year...

You can take the written exam thrice.

Danielane, maybe when Marlene wrote about the "2 years at a lesser school" she was actually referring to the two years of prep course (prépa) Charlotte has just undertaken at her (Fontainebleau?) lycée...

I don't know, but it's not a school: it's the normal way to prepare the ENS exam.

Laura, the lycée in Fontainebleau was before these last two years at lycée Fenelon. In Fontainebleau, she took her BAC exam, with the much-discussed, much-praised results coming out in the summer 2004, then she went to study at Fenelon to prepare for the ENS exam. I think that makes the sting so much harsher, the fact that she spent the last two years preparing for it. But, as the universal saying goes, nothing worth having is easy to obtain, meaning that everything that is worth having must be earned with hard work: whether it's a loving, lasting relationship or a place at a top school, the principal applies.

I don't think that the press would cover such a story. Even though it involves a bit of "celebrity failure," it doesn't involve enough to be regarded as "scandal."

Results of the ENS exams came out on june 29th , and Charlotte is not on the list... This means that she didn't pass the exams.
