I am applying for an Eiffel scholarship, and my school required me to send a CV as follows:

CV outlining the following information: mention, rank of classification, situation within your promotion, number of students in the promotion, diplomas with indication of specialty, date of graduation, mentions/honors and final marks certified by the institution.

I could not understand what do they actually mean or refer to. I have emailed the Coordinator, but have not received her reply.

Please help me correctly understand these terms! Thank you so much!

  • Is this an email directly to you? A website? If this is a translation, and you have access to the original, posting that would be helpful. – Acccumulation Dec 18 '18 at 19:03

This sounds like a bad translation from French (and it's not unlikely that the coordinator has no clue how to explain what these terms mean).

The French "promotion" means "promotion", but also "class" or "cohort". "Mention très bien" is an exam passed with "distinction". "Situation" means "situation" but also "position". So what they probably want is:

CV outlining the following information: exams passed with distinction, rank of classification, position within your class/year/cohort, number of students in the class/year/cohort, diplomas with indication of specialty, date of graduation, any special distinction/honors and final marks certified by the institution.
