The section you choose will also influence future employers. There is a definite preference for Série Scientifique pupils, and many a literary-minded pupil will choose this option for that reason alone. Next in pecking-order preference for employers (and selective further education establishments) is the Série Economique et sociologique. The Literary section tends to be, unfortunately, for weaker pupils…but this is also the section with creative options such as music, cinema and fine arts. The technological bac is geared to those who see themselves in the world of business: sales, accountants, secretarial, etc… This section also has a poor press, but many a pupil who is better at oral expression and who has good interpersonal skills but weaker academic ones will find him or herself here.
