In order to assess the anxiety level anxiety scale questionnaire was administered on the first and final year students. The finding shows that there is no significant difference between the first and final year students on anxiety level. T-test was computed to study the differences between the two groups of first and final year students with respect to their anxiety levels. The mean anxiety level of the first year students is 2.53 and that of the final year students is 2.48. Thus, indicating that the level of anxiety in both the groups is below three on the five point scale. This means that the anxiety level of both the groups is not high. Now, in order to see whether there is any significant difference between the two groups T-test was applied. The value of t-test had come around 0.9, SD(0.46); SED (0.10) which was not falling at either of the significant points (P>0.05 and P=0.01). This clearly rejects the hypothesis that the anxiety level would be higher in the final year students due to their apprehension about getting placed in comparison to the first year students.
