Miss France 2022: the general culture test is there, will you do better than the candidates?

Forty minutes and not one more. The 29 candidates for the Miss France 2022 election took a break from their detailed preparation schedule to answer the traditional general culture test. A multiple-choice questionnaire divided this year into five sections: “revisions”, “French”, “arts and entertainment”, “geography” and “logic”.

If a good score does not ensure a place among the 15 semi-finalists, the reverse is however decisive. And synonymous with elimination, even before the start of the ceremony, on December 11 in Caen. In the last promotions, several Miss have distinguished themselves in this very important event on the road to the crown and the scarf. Marine Lorphelin and Camille Cerf taking first place in their respective promotion. And you, what grade would you have obtained?
