The third level lasts 3 years for, as a rule, pupils aged 12 to 15. This corresponds with the first secondary school level.

Organization and class types :

As from third level classes are organized into three types. After the second level every student continues in the type of class adapted to his or her abilities and learning rhythm.

This system of different class types makes it possible to provide students with an educational support and training that will allow them to aquire the knowledge and skills expected of them by the end of compulsory school. It also makes it possible to focus more particularly on the different types of future education or training. 

Students who do not fulfil the basic requirements study with an individual programme. Some schools of the "Cycle d'orientation" offer these students special classes.
