Abstract:
The study was conducted to known the academic stress among post graduate students from agricultural family. Academic stress is defined as the body’s response to academic-related demands that exceed adaptive capabilities of students (Wilks, 2008). It is estimated that 10-30% of students experience some degree of academic stress during their academic career (Johnson, 1979). The students who came from agricultural family are more prone to academic stress when compared to other students due to the financial situations of their families. The present study was undertaken to find out the association between academic stress with the age, income and education among post graduate students from agricultural family. The study was conducted in the state of Andhra Pradesh with the sample of 30 students pursuing post graduate in arts, science and agriculture. Purposive sampling test was adopted for the study. The academic stress among post graduates students was measured using academic stress scale developed by Dalia Bedewy and Adel Gabrie (2015). Chi-square test was used for the study. The study revealed that there was no significant association between age, education and income with academic stress among post graduate students from agricultural family.
