“Successful students are made, not born”
Did you know that only about 40% of students pass their first semester of Cegep, and only about 65% of students who enter Cegep end-up graduating with a DEC?
What does this mean?
- That the majority of students leaving high school are not equipped to study independently.
- That students are reluctant to seek the support and guidance they need at Cegep.
- That getting into Cegep is hard but getting through Cegep is even harder.
The transition from high school to Cegep is a challenging one. But it does not have to be overwhelming.
