All students in the first year of lycée must chose two exploratory subjects.
The weekly course load for typical Seconde students is as follows:
For SIS students, the two exploratory subjects will automatically be:
Motivated Inter students may add 3 hours of an additional language to their course load if their schedule so allows. They may choose from Italian, Japanese, Latin or Greek. Once begun the class may not be dropped during the school year. In Première, students may choose to continue studying this language, if there are no scheduling conflicts, or drop the option.
In order not to overload the student’s timetable it is possible to request that the option is considered as exploration lesson no.2 (enseignement d’exploration). For example: it would be possible to study SES (obligatory) and Italian if the scheduling allows it.
The weekly course load of an Inter student is currently:
|Seconde is a difficult year for a number of students because the requirements at the lycée in terms of personal effort, the detail expected, etc. are much higher than in middle school. Inter students generally manage well, but the additional effort required in the move from 3ème to the lycée should not be underestimated.|
For students planning to opt for the literary stream (the L bac), it can be particularly judicious to take an optional 3rd language in Seconde.
This is because for the bac, students must choose a "specialty". For L students taking the OIB the choices are:
 SES: discovering the principles and methods specific to economics and sociology through the study of current events and issues.
 Visual Arts: (taught by a visual arts teacher) an exploration of different locations and formats relevant to today’s art world, a realistic look at the training and career options available in art and culture.
 Literature and society: (taught by a French or H/G teacher) understanding the issues, options and interest of studying literature and the humanities; perceiving the interactions between literature, history and society; exploring the variety of courses of study and professional activities linked to literary studies.
 Scientific methods and practices: (taught by a physics/chemistry or natural sciences teacher) become familiar with scientific reasoning through interdisciplinary projects; understand the contributions to and the role of science in major issues in society; discover a selection of scientific careers and courses of study.
 Students following the OIB curriculum cannot also "specialize" in English/German (when it is the language of their OIB section) and therefore cannot present said specialty at the bac.
