Strategies To Overcome Academic Stress Among School Students

Academic stress is the common burden faced by all the students in their school life. Sarita (2015) states that academic stress among students can be elevated due to parents and other students’ intervention. In this context, academic stress is creating both personal and social relationship problems to the students. Nowadays, students use many techniques to cope up with stress, either in a positive or negative way. Some students alleviate their stress in a negative way by consuming alcohol, drug, refusal and behavioural changes (Sarita, 2015).
