après passage d'un examen


Explanation:
that is the way I read it at least and that is the standard i believe in anglo-saxon education system (eg after working 5 yrs on a PhD program, the actual final fullfillment of the requirements is the holding of a public examination of the candidate), quite different than what is meant by 'au vu des résulats du concours'

ok, ok guys, please accept my apologies for displaying such cultural insensitivity and ignorance (i'll promise and try doing some research about what exactly is an anglo-saxon! after all my king is a saxe-cobourg-gotha himself!!)
