» Le deuxième prénom et la mention « très bien » = Middle names and good grades

» Le deuxième prénom et la mention « très bien » = Middle names and good grades | Name News | Scoop.it
Entre 2012 et 2018, 9,64% des candidates et candidats au bac (général ou techno) ont obtenu la mention Très bien. Ce fut le cas de 8,92% des candidats et candidates qui n'avaient qu'un seul prénom, et 10,5% des candidat.e.s avec 2 prénoms ou plus. Un écart de 1,5 points. Ou 17% en plus.
Clare's insight:

The further right along the chart is, the more likely a student with this name is likely to get good baccalauréat grades in France. The higher up it is, the more likely they are to do better if they have that name with a middle name.
