OTERO, Analía Elizabeth; CORICA, Agustina María  and  MERBILHAA, Jimena. Transitioning from High School to University: A Longitudinal Study of Two High School Graduate Cohorts in the Buenos Aires Metropolitan Area (AMBA). Educación [online]. 2021, vol.45, n.1, pp.439-459. ISSN 2215-2644.

Amidst the tendency to extend the time youngsters spend on educational activities as a trait of 21st century youth, this study reflects on the importance of temporality and scenarios that enable or restrict the possibilities of educational continuity at the university level. Empirical evidence from two longitudinal studies conducted in the last 20 years is presented. Post-graduation educational routes and the transition from high school to university are reconstructed to understand university educational routes traced by two cohorts of young high school graduates (1999 and 2011) residing in the Greater Buenos Aires Metropolitan Area among varying social, economic and political contexts of the country. A follow-up was carried out with young people from different socioeconomic sectors who continued their university studies after receiving their High School graduation diploma.
