There is an exam at the end of each division but the first one where it is a competition.

It means that in the case of an exam, all of those who haven't failed have to be promoted. In the case of a competition, you know before the beginning that there will be one, or two or more contracts.

The winners won the contracts, though the judges aren't under the legal obligation to give every contract, if they feel they shouldn't be attributed. That's the case for each competition that allows you to become an employee of the State.

The specific rules for these exams and competitions exist in the official rules of the POB school which unfortunately aren't available on the web but only on a printed paper.

Everything is explained in : the exams of the youngest and the competition for the oldest, and theirs modalities. I wouldn't take the risk to denaturate the text with a poor translation.

[Edited by Helene to add: cygneblanc provided us with a "soft copy" of the text in French, which is archived here:

Thank you. I didnít realise the students were assessed on pre-set material Ė I thought they were assessed in a standard class. And the jury seems to represent the whole spectrum of the organisation.

Edit: Sorry, I posted this before the French text had been deleted - my posting doesn't make sense anymore!

Sorry, Becca. I moved the French text to an archival thread of its own:
