well we think Charlotte is studying along the lines of humanities, Pierre will be doing some sort of law/business in Milan, and as far as Andrea goes it's been rumoured he will go to NYC to complete his undergraduate studies. he did some college in Montreal, i believe as well.

Say you have 100 people who take the written exam, but only the people with the 20 or so highest scores get to go on to the oral exam. So everyone who didn't make the Top 20 doesn't go on, but they may still have technically a passing grade (for another option). Does that make sense?

I see what you're saying. If they only take 20 people and 20 people got 95 and she got 90, she still did very well. Only, the competition was stiff.

So, she didn't necessarily fail.

Exactly. I don't remember how many they take exactly or have any clue what their minimum requirements are, but I'm sure it's something like this and that's why students who take it and don't move on to the oral part or beyond that get so frustrated, because they study really hard for it and do really well, but just not well enough compared to others. ENS probably does it that way because they only have so many places that they can fill per year.

it's 75 places per year as far as I remember, but I don't know how many people took the exam. But there are normally people that come from almost all over the country, so there were many I guess!

Has there been any indication of what Charlotte will do next education-wise? Another year at Fenelon or Sorbonne?

There was a remark made only in passing on Larry King Live this past Monday or Tuesday that she did fail "big time." Larry King's remark was just one example of how money cannot buy eveything in life. His remark was by no means the topic of the show -- just a remark in passing. Is there any way to access the unedited, complete archived transcripts of The Larry King Show? I don't even remember who King's guest was, because I was only using his show for "background music." But that remark really caught me. What does he know that we don't?

Yes me too.I think he was talking with someone who was guest and said that money can't buy everything so he refered to Charlotte's failure as an example.

Here is the site to find the transcripts from Larry King Live. Does anybody know which show it was because I can't seem to find his remarks about Charlotte? Thanks!

That seems a little harsh. I guess I would need to read the transcript to see. For most people, an exam failure is a private thing.

I think, Larry King must have been mistaken, or thinking of someone else. It just doesn't seem very clear to me why King would advert suddenly in one sentence to the topic of Princess Caroline's daughter while King was speaking with his guest. Who knows. By the way, it would have probably been edited out of anything less than the complete transcrpit as it was onlt a casual remark, and such things often end up on the cutting room floor during editing for sake of space, which I found out the hard way by sending off for a paid, complete transcript of a one-hour interview only to end up with three edited pages.

Well if it's true and he did say that, then I would advise King to pipe down! He has no business referring to Charlotte in that way. I agree with BurberryBrit, that was harsh (if he even said it that is).

Yes it does. Thanks for explaining :) . When you originally said "did not score high enough" I was thinking you meant did not score high enough to pass lol, that's why I was confused :p

According to this article http://showbizandstyle.inq7.net/you/...ticle_id=17258,
during his trip to the Philippines, Andrea said he is studying international politics and visual arts at the American University of Paris...don't know how reliable the source is, but it seems to confirm what we had already heard.

I believe there is truth to both articles. Apparently NYU and AUP have a linkage agreement where students from one university can attend the other and vice versa for a semester or a year. I believe he and Tati will be spending some time in New York to attend NYU but their home base will be AUP. Besides, wasn't Tati rumored to have been attending the American University in London? It's quite possible that she transferred.

I see your point but the results were published and neither she or Felix did pass
