Parts of a Research Paper


Several studies have shown the positive relationship between stress by health and social activities affecting the academic performance of students. Many researches on this topic are done either on gender basis, different educational levels to find out the affect on academic performance of students. It is within this research framework that we want to find out how much stress on gender basis affects the academic performances of Masters Students of National University of Computer and Emerging Sciences. Consequently, this paper attempts to determine the factors of stress resulting from health and social factors affecting intellectual factors which on further analysis on gender basis affect the academic performance of students. To accomplish our objective, we took two samples of Master’s students enrolled in NUCES. First group was of 50 Male students and second was of 50 female students enrolled in 2012 and 2013. By administering our questionnaire survey, information related to topics, past researches, Spss analysis, and graphic representation we got to our final results. Results are presented graphically, inferentially and descriptively. Regression analysis and Independent Sample T test are done for the analysis to check the predictions of independent variables on dependent variable and difference of affects on gender basis.

Stress is most undermined syndrome in our society that is neglected since the element of mental health associated with it. Internationally there is a meaningful work and research conducted on the issue but there were no break through research available domestically. Mental health is actually the parameter for improved or enhanced performance in every society. There is a Greek philosophy;

“Mens sana in corpore sano” Thales

Translation: “A sound mind in a sound body”

Having mentioned that, there was a need for identification of Stress and the key stressors that are affecting the academic performance. We further refine the research by studying the effects on Master students and make it a gender base study which will help us to differentiate between the effects and innate intuition of managing with stress in male and female students.

For the very purpose, it was notorious that there broadly are two stressors that are external in nature and have a solid impact on person’s abilities. These stressors include, Health Factors and Social Factors. We are taking the Intellectual Abilities and Academic performance to be the dependent variable where as stress is regarded to be an independent variable. The type of research is Quantitative whereas 100 is the number of participants and our sample size that is to be included in the research. Research will be conducted and based on the Master students in National University Lahore campus while the study will be carried out on gender bases and the results will further be compared for understanding of any difference or similarity between the effects of stress on different genders.

Our literature review will base academic performance, intellectual abilities, Stress, two identified stressors and each dissected to an extent, and the impact of stress in academic elaboration in both genders.
