The capacity to cope with academic stress can be deemed as vulnerable in some students who have shown several alterations. The article reports on the relationship among academic stress and symptomology. Results were compared between men and women. A survey of 527 public university students was taken in Mexico, with the Academic Stress Inventory using the Rossi Classification. Data were analyzed with multiple regression and it was determined that academic overload and class participation were predictors of physical symptoms; mandatory and group work as well as insufficient time, academic overload, and class participation were predictors of psychological symptoms while mandatory work, academic overload and classroom participation and massification were predictors of behavioral symptoms. In addition, women showed a higher frequency of academic stress and of physical and psychological symptoms. So a timely identification of conditions that generate stress may lessen symptoms in students such as drowsiness, fatigue, migraines, absenteeism, restlessness, anxiety and/or memory problems.
