Abstract [sv]

Stress bland unga ökar i Sverige och denna studie undersöker sambandet mellan stress och studieprestation bland universitetsstudenter. Studien omfattar 63 studenter från två, 3-åriga programs andra, fjärde och sjätte terminer. Data samlades in med en enkät med 24 självskattningsfrågor med fem fasta svarsalternativ. Perceived stress scale och Educational stress scale for adolescents användes för utformningen av frågor. Resultaten visar en hög korrelation mellan upplevd vardaglig stress, studiestress och studieprestation. Resultaten antyder könsskillnader för studiestress och studieprestation, där män i genomsnitt upplevde mer stress och sämre prestationer. Skillnader fanns mellan olika terminer och de som går sista året på sin utbildning upplever mer studiestress och presterar lägre.

Abstract [en]

Stress among Swedish adolescence rises and this study examines the correlation between stress and academic performance among university students. The study includes 63 students from two, 3-years programs in their 2nd, 4th and 6th semester. Data were collected with a survey with 24 self-assessment questions with five fixed answer options. The Perceived stress scale and the Educational stress scale for adolescents were used to shape the survey questions. The results show a high correlation between perceived everyday stress, study stress and school performance. The results indicate gender differences in study stress and academic performance, where men on average experienced more stress and worse performance. There were differences between semesters and those in their last year reported on average higher study stress and lower academic performance.
