More than a few hours of reflection and stress for high school students and students in reorientation to register their wishes in Parcoursup. Among the 20,000 training courses offered, 10 wishes and 20 sub-wishes must be selected, with the possibility of adding 10 additional ones for apprenticeship training. Past Tuesday, March 29, 11:59 p.m., it will no longer be possible to add or replace them. The cross gives some advice to latecomers.

► Enter as many wishes as possible
For this stage of Parcoursup, do not hesitate to go around the courses offered and add the wishes that interest the student. This will give him a little more time to refine his thinking, since he still has ten days to confirm his choice. If, finally, one of the selected choices no longer interests him, the student has until April 7 not to confirm it. However, it will no longer be possible to add more.
In order to optimize your chances, it is also preferable to select selective but also non-selective training. It is also strongly advised not to enter only one wish, even if it is the one the student is aiming for: planning B plans is a security that may be necessary. In 2021, candidates had registered an average of 13 wishes and sub-vows, counting work-study training.
► Do not underestimate gateways
For students who are aiming for selective training and who have a very precise idea of the job they want to do, the gateways should not be underestimated. It is often possible to join one training through another. In these cases, instead of focusing on this training alone, it is advisable to broaden your search by choosing a sector that will allow access to it. In other words, while it is necessary to first formulate the choices that are really wanted, it is also prudent to provide fallback solutions.

► Do not focus on the application file
If the student is behind on the choice of his wishes, it is not necessary that he begins today to fill in his application file. On the contrary, it is advisable to focus on the formations to be selected. Once the latter have been chosen, he will have until April 7 to compile his file and write his cover letter.
