The present study has been conducted among 337 boys and girls (135 & 202 respectively) of Kawar tribe of Surguja district, Chhattisgarh who were purposively selected from three blocks of the district, viz. Lakhanpur. Batauli and Lundra. Academic anxiety and state of stress were assessed by administering recommended psychological manuals and Pignet Index (Pignet, 1901) was calculated to assess the body build. It was found that boys were taller and heavier than girls and girls were found academically more anxious than boys. Both boys and girls showed non-satisfactory body build and girls exhibited high degree of stress. The findings also exhibited that boys and girls from science stream were found very low stressed whereas comparatively low state of stress was observed among boys and girls of arts stream. Some girls from science stream showed severe state of stress.
