Hello,

A teacher in France would like to know if a "mock exam", ou a "mock baccalaureate" is correct.

Thank you for your brilliant contribution.

Either could be used. It would help to have the full context of use.

In the UK, training examinations for GCSE are "mock GCSEs", but I don't know how this would transfer to the baccalaureate.

A "mock-up" is something that is not the real thing, but almost; a model for the real thing. For example, magazine compaies do mock-ups for each page, then layout the real page that goes to the printer.

A "mock" election would be just like the real thing, a model, or imitation.

I think that your teacher means "practice baccalaureate, which means to practice the ceremony so everyone knows where to stand and what to do before the real event. :lol:
