Post-Baccalaureate Orientation: What to Do After Physics and Chemistry?

The specialty of physics-chemistry, as well as mathematics and SVT, facilitates success in post-baccalaureate medical education, in the preparatory class or in engineering school. But these post-baccalaureate orientation courses are not limited to these areas if you have pursued the specialty of physics-chemistry.

“Analyze documents to extract useful data, look up numerical values, make graphs, find all the ways to solve a question …” Here is the non-exhaustive list of skills provided by the specialty of physics-chemistry, prepared by Arlette Poisot , teacher at the En Forêt de Montargis high school (45). It is useful in many higher education courses, from preparation (scientific and commercial) to PASS to BTS or BUT.

The specialty of physics-chemistry, an asset in the scientific preparatory class and in the medical field

Valuable skills to evolve in various fields, including medical courses. “The requirements in physics and chemistry are high at PASS. The programs there are very heavy in life sciences, physics and chemistry, but not so complex in mathematics,” says Nadine Sudres, a psychologist at the National Education of Toulouse. 31). “Those who have studied the specialties of mathematics or complementary mathematics, SVT and physics-chemistry are mainly accepted in medical studies and do better,” adds the professor.

Thus, the scientific triplet continues to be an asset to study in the medical field but also in the scientific preparatory class.. “In PCSI (physics, chemistry and engineering sciences), physics-chemistry and mathematics are required, even expert mathematics. In MP2I (mathematics, physics, engineering and computer science) and MPSI (mathematics, physics and engineering sciences), they are asked to have studied physics-chemistry or engineering sciences until the end of the year ”, explains Bernard Le Floch, director of CPGE studies at the Saliège Institute in Balma (31 ).

After the specialty of physics-chemistry, commercial training and even literary

For the National Education Psychologist, ECG (general economics and business) preparatory courses are also available with a combination of math, physics-chemistry and SES (economics and social sciences). This triplet will first give you the option to choose between studies in the commercial or scientific field. For BCPST preparation (biology, chemistry, physics and earth sciences), the specialty of physics-chemistry can be associated with mathematics as well as SVT.

Then came the business schools after ECG preparation, the engineering schools after PCSI, MP2I, MPSI and BCPST. Thus, you will be able to consider a wide variety of professions, in relation to aerospace, territory (road layouts), sustainable development. For example, when there is a construction, you will analyze the environment so as not to destroy it “, explains the professor.

Choosing the specialty of physics-chemistry does not prevent further literary studies. Arlette Poisot’s students have remarkably begun studying law and history. If this is your wish, the teacher recommends a combination with the HGGSP specialty (history-geography, geopolitics, and political science). And if you dream of going to work abroad, the LLCER specialty (foreign languages, literatures, and civilizations) may be perfect.

Get ready for technician jobs after SVT specialties in BTS or BUT

But shorter studies should not be excluded after having taken the SVT specialty in high school. Different BTS and BUT are possiblesuch as the “BTS in chemistry, optics-glasses, water crafts and BUT physical or chemical measurements”, details the professor of physics-chemistry. These courses lead to technical trades that perform the manipulations requested by engineers as in the water sector (readings). and analysis) and the nuclear sector (pressure management in gas pipelines) “.
