Results: According to Perceived stress score by cohen, majority were stressed (score more than 13) 85% (n=73), possible potential factors like, 60% of study subjects were not staying in hostel previously, among which, majority (n=44) study subjects were stressed 87.1% of study subjects were having a nuclear family among which majority (75.3%)of study subjects were stressed. Conclusion: Majority of the first year MBBS students showed perceived stress, among which factors in students having experience of hostel stay showed more stress, whereas the academic stress dint had any effect on cortisol, plaque scores and gingival health.
