Studiensmätinstrument var en enkät som bestod av frågor om akademisk stress, generellself-efficacy samt copingstrategier. Resultatet visade att användandet avemotionsfokuserad coping bäst förklarade studenternas akademiska stress. Detfanns även signifikanta könsskillnader i resultatet som visade att kvinnoranvänder emotions- och undvikande coping i högre utsträckning än män, samtatt kvinnor är mer akademiskt stressade. Däremot fanns inga signifikantakönsskillnader gällande problemfokuserad coping och self-efficacy. Slutligendiskuteras studiens resultat samt förslag på vidare forskning.
