ParcourSup study: French higher education

Here is the URL link to the original dataset. This is my personal project about ParcourSup data, the French process to get to higher education and which type of students go to which type of higher education which will be published in multiple parts. I wanted to look at this data because higher education (also called post-bac education in France) is a huge deal and can also shows a lot about our society. It's also interesting to compare reality with what we usually view higher education. Last but not least, that's also a good exercice of data visualization and story telling which I hope you will enjoy.

Back to school! Or rather, its analysis. Last time we learned the differences each type of formation, especially between non-selective and selective formations. Moreover, we combined this knowledge with what we learned last time in the geographical analysis and found out that some formations (especially CPGE) have significantly profiles (i.e. percent of Very Good distinction students for example) whether they are situated in Paris or in the rest of the country. We will now see what kind of students go to each formation.

Moreover, we already saw that public institutions are much more common. Yet, are they as attractive as private ones? Even though mass education is public (for example, Licences) , we can wonder how popular private schools popular are and what if they attract different students than public education.
