What are the potential subjects for the SES test?

The economics and social sciences program is condensed with a major economic topic, another of sociological predominance, and a third so-called “cross-reference” that mixes the two subjects, making the revisions substantial. It is highly recommended to master all the subjects provided in the program to pass the test, but to lighten the workload of the candidates, the Ministry of National Education has differentiated certain sub-topics of the program. Thus, from this year onwards, some subjects are only assessed during the baccalaureate sessions in even courses, others in odd courses and the most important ones remain potential subjects every year. According to this new classification, these are the topics that may fall during the test of economics and social sciences:

For the economy:

  • What are the sources and challenges of economic growth?
  • What are the foundations of international trade and the internationalization of production?
  • What economic policies in the European framework?

For social sciences:

  • How is today’s French society structured?
  • What changes in work and employment?
  • How to explain political commitment in democratic societies?

For transversal subjects:

What inequalities are compatible with the different conceptions of social justice?

The specialization test in economics and social sciences lasts four hours. For this specialty, applicants can choose between three subjects: a thesis subject from a documentary file and two composite test subjects. If they opt for the thesis, the candidates will have to answer only one question but in a detailed and above all argued way. The compound tests are divided into two parts. The first, mandatory and common to all candidates, is an exercise in reasoning based on a documentary file scored in ten points. The second half of the exam is different between the two subjects, candidates can choose to answer a knowledge mobilization question worth four points and complete a documentary study for six points or answer three knowledge mobilization questions for a total of ten points.

To cover all the topics of the program and give the candidates more chances of success, each part of the test deals with different topics of the program. Note that the thesis and the third part of the composite test (the study of the paper) relate to various topics in the SES program.
