Student Stress Scale Test –> retake

Sooooooo, while going through papers trying to get this Honors portfolio together, I found the stress test we took in Honors Orientation. My score then was 597. Now it’s 384… !!! Hahahaha. I object to the “are likely to experience in the next six months” part of the instructions; I would only be at 331(!!!) without them… LOL

150 – 300 suggests a moderate risk of serious illness if stress is ignored.
150 and below suggests a low risk.
