With more than 50 years of experience, the General Prep’s mission is to prepare for external and internal competitions for the State, Territorial and Hospital Public Service category A.

Description of the course

This course allows candidates from various backgrounds to obtain the basics or to consolidate the fundamentals and to specialise in the optional modules, in order to pass the admissibility tests for category A competitions.

The preparation is based on fundamental lessons (general culture, public law, economics, public finance) and methodological lessons (dissertation, summary note, practical cases, languages), interspersed with weekly written assignments. Two mock competitions allow students to practice the conditions of the tests.

Students eligible for a category A competition benefit from specific training for the oral admission tests.
