The philosophy test is one of the most feared in the 2024 baccalaureate. A reputation due to the object of study of the subject and the comments which come back each year on the possible subjective grading of the subject ;rée by each examiner. But the philosophy exam assesses students' abilities to achieve their goals. build an argument and à develop arguments to respond to questions a question on notions which often give rise to à interpretation.

To pass the philosophy test, you must forget about learning the courses by heart but understand and master the use of the philosophical notions seen in progress. Regarding quotations and philosophical references, if everyone considers it essential to have them, you must above all know how to use them and not fill up your exam paper. references without them having any connection with the subject. Note also that well-used philosophical references can be supplemented by personal references, if these are relevant.

Finally, some additional advice for candidates who decide to tackle text commentary: two pitfalls lie ahead: Avoid. First off-topic, you need to take the time to understand the concepts studied in the text extract and clearly identify the question they raise. egrave;vent. Once this stage has been passed, you must not fall into the easy way of doing this. and paraphrase the text. The goal is to explain the author's thinking, always with arguments developed thanks to the candidate's knowledge.

Despite the reform of the baccalaureate, the philosophy test has kept its traditional formula. Candidates therefore have four hours to complete their papers during the written philosophy exam. Three subjects are offered: two dissertations and one relating to a study of a text. Candidates who opt for an essay only have a simple question as their subject. to which they must respond with a detailed argument. and justified through personal philosophical references and knowledge. For the study of text, candidates must account for the meaning and philosophical significance of a text signed by the author. by an author present in the philosophy program. Beware of the biggest pitfall of this exercise, considered by some as simpler than the dissertation: paraphrasing the text will not be enough to pass the test.
