Even though the lockdown gave many a time to hone new skills and learn something new, for the young students prepping for higher education, distant learning proved cumbersome. As per the report's findings, a whopping 65% of young people reported having learned less since the beginning of the pandemic because of the transition from the classroom to online education.
Nearly 50% of the younger students said that they feared the pandemic delaying their education and at least 9% said they feared 'failing' in their exams, which drove them to experience mental stress. The report also pinpointed to an apparent skewed difference between men and women.
