Parcoursup: a young Congolese migrant sees his 25 wishes accepted

Jonathan Kikanga, an 18-year-old Congolese migrant, made his high school and his teachers proud after being accepted in the 25 wishes he had formulated on the higher education access platform Parcoursup.

Truly flawless. Jonathan Kikanga, a young Congolese who arrived in France only three years ago, was a hit on the Parcoursup platform, the first results of which were published on Thursday. The future bachelor was accepted in the 25 courses to which he had applied.

“We are very proud of him. Twenty-five requests accepted, we have never seen that! reacted the principal of the Dupuy-de-Lôme high school, in Brest, in which he is educated, with Ouest France. With an average of 17.5, his teachers suspected that he would be accepted into at least one course, but were far from imagining his performance.

A feat all the more remarkable since the young Jonathan, originally from Kinshasa, only arrived in France in 2019, and was not educated between the 6e and the 3e. His mother having died and his father living in Angola, the homeless teenager was taken care of by the Adjim association, which accompanies unaccompanied minors.

This structure therefore enabled him to follow intensive French courses and to enroll in the Lycée Dupuy-de-Lôme in the Sciences and Technologies of Industry and Sustainable Development (STI2D) section.

Despite all the choices available to him, Jonathan Kikanga has already set his sights on the National Institute of Applied Sciences (Insa) in Lyon, with the desire to follow an engineering course, without having yet a precise idea of ​​the field in which he wishes to work later.
