Rabat – Myriam Bourhail, a Moroccan high school student in Dumas city, received the highest Baccalaureate exam score in France. Scoring 21.03 out of 20 (799 points out of 760) Myriam surprised herself for having exceeded her own expectations.
Recently celebrating her 18th birthday, this young French-Moroccan’s efforts were rewarded after a year of devoted studying and hard work. Although Myriam was confident in her ability to score high, she did not expect to achieve such an amazing feat.
According to Union Press, Myriam’s lowest grades were 15/20 in sports, 18/20 in History and Geography, and 19/20 in Philosophy. Apart from these three “low” grades, Myriam scored 20 out of 20 in subjects including English, Spanish, physics, mathematics and SVT (Sciences of Life and Earth).
The student thanked her teachers for their patience and dedication that enabled her to achieve this remarkable score. In turn, her teachers applauded her diligence and perseverance that led her to this noteworthy accomplishment.
Mohamed Bourhail, Myriam’s father, is a Franco-Moroccan worker who interrupted his studies after obtaining a degree in Mathematics and Natural Sciences to cope with the constraints of life. Still, he is committed to his children’s wellbeing and education and strives to provide them with opportunities he never had— continuing their studies and the luxury of choosing their own path.
The father’s mission is accomplished as Myriam’s elder sister recently earned her degree in the Sciences of Life and Earth (SVT) and plans to apply for a master’s program next year. Myriam’s second sister is about to test for her biology degree while her brother is studying towards his diploma.
Now, Myriam is considering higher education. She needs only choose as the most prestigious institutes and universities welcome her with open arms. Myriam has expressed interest in studying medicine.
