French term or phrase: D.U.B.I.
Would really appreciate any help on on D.U.B.I. - it appears on a French diploma - the text reads:
Le Secrétaire General de l'Université de...
vu le D.U.B.I. equivalence par 2 années de classes préparatoires obtenu précédemment par l'intéressé,
certifie que...
Would be grateful even if somebody could just help with the acronym itself - i.e. what it stands for in French!

Course credit report (card) of credit equivalent to 2 years of preparatory classes
Explanation:
I'm basing my interpretation entirely on the context, and on what I know of evaluation of credits towards degrees. [I served on the committee that determined credit and course evaluation standards for the college I'm retired from, so I have some experience in this area :-)) ]

I'm *guessing*, by the way, that the *U.* in D .U.B.I. stands for *unité* (in English, *credit*). You might want to look at the following URL, where credit equivalences are discussed, in terms of admission to French Higher Ed. programs (in this case, in engineering, but it would apply to other areas as well).
http://www2.cefi.org/plaquet.html#2-2-1

Take a look at this one, too:
www.euroeducation.net/prof/franco.htm

I also found the following, which might give you an idea where the B.I. comes from:

... Pour chaque cours faisant l’objet d’un examen en vue du diplôme, on publie un bulletin d’information à l’intention des élèves et des enseignants. Ce ...
www.learning.gov.ab.ca/french/M_12/evaluation/diplome/bulle... default.asp

One of the meanings of "bulletin" is "report card": school report GB, report card US (from the Oxford SuperLex).

That was fantastic! I visited the homepage of the Ministère de l'Education Nationale and several other sites -all to no avail. Really appreciate your help - not only was it bang on target, but also extremely informative and well researched. Thank you so very much - hope I can reciprocate some day. Best regards - Sangeeta
