Abstract

This study was carried out to determine the sleeping hours and their effect on the academic achievements among year 2 and year 3 Biomedical Science students of Faculty of Allied Health Sciences, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia for the session 2009/2010. A total of 104 subjects were involved in the study in which close-ended questionnaires were used. The result showed that there was no association (p>0.05) between sleeping hours and academic achievement (CGPA). There was also no association between stress level and CGPA (p > 0.05) and between study skill and CGPA (p>0.05). Using the Mann-Whitney test, there was no significant median difference seen in CGPA according to year of study (p>0.05). However, there was a significant (p<0.05) median difference in CGPA according to gender. The male CGPA was found to be higher than females. In conclusion, this report showed that sleeping hours did not affect students' academic achievements CGPA. However, CGPA differs among gender with male of 3.52 and female of 3.27.
