At the center of the discontent, the Parcoursup system, a new method of admission to the university, which requires the facs to peel the wishes of high school seniors and classify them to not accommodate more students than they do. can. A provision now also challenged by university presidents. Lack of time, means or ideological reasons, many of them refuse to sort the files of future students.
