Denscombe, Martyn
British Educational Research Journal, v26 n3 p359-74 Jun 2000
Analyzes the experiences of 15-16 year-olds in England focusing on how the General Certificate of Secondary Education (GCSE) constitutes a source of stress in young people. Argues that when doing GCSEs in year 10 and 11, the stress experiences can be linked to the social conditions of late modernity. (CMK)
