The Korean "Examination Hell": Long Hours of Studying, Distress, and Depression.
Lee, Meery; Larson, Reed
Journal of Youth and Adolescence, v29 n2 p249-71 Apr 2000
Studied whether higher rates of clinical depression found among Korean adolescents than U.S. adolescents were related to Korea's highly competitive college entrance examinations. Results from 56 Korean and 62 U.S. high school students suggest that the effect of the college examination in generating depression in Korean adolescents may be partly mediated through its effect on their daily experience.
