In a country like Senegal, there is a high failure rate in the university. In 2017, this rate is estimated at 60% at the University Cheikh Anta Diop of Dakar (UCAD). This high failure rate can be explained by the difficult working, accommodation and catering conditions faced by students. However, a very important fact is often forgotten : it is the choice of the orientation of the student. Indeed, if for some the choice is clear, it is not the same for many others. Almost all students complete their studies without ever consulting a guidance counselor, while the latter can contribute directly or indirectly to the student's success in his transition to higher education. That is why we want to create a bot, which can accompany the student along his school curriculum to guarantee him the best orientation possible. This bot can be consulted at any time and will be able to take into account the changes of the student's decision.
