The situation like COVID-19 is rare but its influence is so strong that it has become difficult for students to avoid its outcomes on their life. In this review paper different researches and surveys were collected from foreign countries and India. After collecting secondary data, the situational analysis was done. On the basis of literature review, it was found that major stressors for students include perception of safety, threat and risk of contamination, phobia, quarantine and confinement, social exclusion and stigma, lack of institutional support, new teaching pattern, uncertainty in examination as well as financial problems and job uncertainties in case of final year students during COVID-19. Students reported high level of stress, anxiety, sleep problems, poor appetite or over eating, headaches, temper tantrums, excessive exposure to mobile screen etc. Researches confirmed that administrators need to make proper metal health support intervention program to reduce the hazards of dramatic impact of COVID-19 on students and enhance their health and productivity. Many final year students are also extremely susceptible to stress. This paper calls for mental health professional to take initiative to help students in dealing with these stressors and to find hope in the time of uncertainties.
