Hey, you're in a panic because the deadline to finalize your Parcoursup application is fast approaching and you still don't understand it? Don't panic, Kidlee comes to the rescue! So let's take a deep breath and start reading this article with a clear head. And yes, watching Tiktok videos between each game won't help you! Concentrate! Soon, you won't hear anymore about this Parcoursup procedure, it will be more like: bac bac bac... And after that, it will be: post bac (except for the students in reorientation of course!)... Is it better or worse? We don't know, you'll tell us! Anyway, let's stop chatting and let's prepare a great file.

First, do you have any idea of the Parcoursup 2022 timeline?

According to l'Internaute, here are the dates to remember for Parcoursup:

5 tips to have a top Parcoursup file 

Lost, you are, several formations, you will choose!

You don't really know what you want to do yet? One day it's a doctor and the next it's a painter? Even if the two professions are the opposite of each other, it's up to you to decide which one suits you best. And if you don't have all the information you need to decide yet, then try for both! With Parcoursup, you can apply to a maximum of 10 courses in 10 different fields. What's more, the offers you receive do not depend on the number of applications you submit or on any kind of prioritization. So, give yourself the means to do what you like because if you choose a job you love, you won't have to work a day in your life.

Your activities extracurricular activities, you will highlight

You still need to have some activities outside of school. Join a basketball team, play soccer, swim...etc. Have you ever been on a language trip? Are you an artist? Maybe you've even been a delegate or volunteered? If you have at least one yes to any of these questions, don't hesitate to add it to your application! Between two similar applications, these activities can really make your application stand out and are proof of your determination and curiosity.

You won't be a slacker, you'll have a CV!

Let's be clear, the CV on Parcoursup is not mandatory. However, some institutions may require it. Don't hesitate to include any experience that could make your application stand out. Also, don't forget that the platform offers a simple and effective default CV. The latter is composed of 3 recommended parts: skills, professional experience and interests and 2 mandatory parts: education and languages.

A school guidance coach, you can have

At first glance, Parcoursup is an endless choice of courses. It's not that easy to determine your future plans and your future career wishes. To do this, we advise you to call on a guidance coach. What is it? The academic coaching will allow you to be accompanied by a guidance professional who will help you see things more clearly. The latter will discuss with you to help you define your project and find the best courses on Parcousup. In the same spirit, don't hesitate to ask your family members for help.

Also, you can take orientation tests that are totally free like the one from Futurness, Zebra Generation or even Designers of the future.

Otherwise, there is not only Parcoursup

At Kidlee, we like to anticipate things. Let's imagine that, in the worst case scenario, you only have negative answers on Parcoursup (this is often the case for selective courses for example). Well, the adventure doesn't end there! Many programs are offered outside of Parcoursup, you just have to look. Business schools, engineering schools, marketing schools, CFAs that offer BTS... You'll be spoilt for choice.
