For John, BLUF: In France they give tough exams in order to graduate from high school. Nothing to see here; just move along.
Not coping well in France.
This is from France 24 and has to do with this year's French school leaving baccalaureate English exam. Here is the lede:
The exam, which is sat by all French pupils in their final school year (normally at 17 years old), presented a passage from Ian McEwan’s “Atonement” relating to the book’s central character, Robbie Turner.Coping? Qu'est-ce que c'est "coping"?
The notorious “Question M” asked, “What are three of his concerns about the situation?” and “How is Turner coping with the situation?”
I feel for the students. French was my worst subject in high school.
But, I was able to cope and to go on to higher education.
