Abstract [en]

A cross-sectional study based on a survey was handed out to studentsat a university in a Swedish city. The purpose of the study was toinvestigate the stress levels of students by examining whetherdifferent forms of examination could lead to differenteffects;specifically, achievement motivation and experienced stress.The survey questions investigated how students felt regarding stresslevels and symptoms in relation to exam types. Our hypotheses werethat take-home written exams would result in lower stress levels butalso lead to less motivation, whereas the opposite would be true forwritten exams during observation. The study showed that studentsdon’t experience any difference in the level of stress towards theexaminations types. The result also showed that the type of stress,achievement motivation and experienced stress didn’t effect theexaminations type and finally there were no difference in stress levelbetween genders.
