Abstract

Happiness lessons in schools.. removing GCSE oral language examinations because they are too stressful… are these political gimmicks from central government, or responses to a real issue regarding the emotional health of children and young people? What is certain is that the results of tests and examinations can form the basis of young people’s self-judgements, aspirations and fears. For a small proportion of students they become a serious obstacle to demonstrating academic achievement and also relate to myriad difficulties in other areas of their life, including relationships and mental health difficulties.
