Think you’ve escaped the pressures of sitting for the Lebanese Baccalaureate? Well, we’re kinda here to remind you of every bac-related memory that still lingers in the back of your mind.

1. Some things just never seem to change.

2. Your year-long companions

3. Advanced technology at your fingertips…

4. Packing your official papers and stationary the night before because you were horrified at the idea of forgetting anything at home.

5. The hidden square on your exam paper.

6. Having this hanging on your fridge door for an indefinite period of time.

8. Last-minute reviewing with your classmates.

9. This iconic map from your history book (and the fact that you had to swallow all 14 chapters of it).

10. And having to memorize all 196 world countries for your geography exam…

11. The Minister of Education suddenly becoming the ultimate star of every news bulletin.

12. The stress of waiting for the results AND surviving multiple website crashes due to the heavy traffic (or else waiting to hear your number on the radio if you’re THAT old).

13. Fireworks, and people complaining about fireworks.

14. And the most terrifying part: gunshots.


15. Last but not least, the standard yearly cheating rumors to keep everyone entertained.
