Philosophy in the Bac

The Bac starts with the Philosophy paper.
A typically French situation is that a 'correct' answer is provided, even for a subject such as this that a more 'Anglo-Saxon' mind might expect  would allow for a wide variety of individual response.

This isn't the 'official' one, but it gives a good example of how French exams work:

The fact that an opinion has been widely held is no evidence whatever that it is not utterly absurd; indeed in view of the silliness of the majority of mankind, a widespread belief is more likely to be foolish than sensible.
- Bertrand Russell
