In this study, the researchers aimed to determine the degrees of stress, coping mechanisms and burnout levels of students enrolled in basic and modular accounting subjects during the 3rd term, A.Y. 2014-2015. Moreover, the researchers aimed to discover the relationships between stressors and coping mechanisms and between coping mechanisms and burnout through the use of Pearson’s r correlation and multiple regression until it produced a final model without heteroscedasticity to predict coping mechanisms for the first one and burnout for the second one. Modified University Student Stress Items Survey was used to measure the degree of stress in relation to stressors. Second, Tobin’s Coping Mechanisms Checklist was used to discover the coping mechanisms most frequently used in relation to a specific stressor and Maslach Burnout Inventory was used to assess experienced burnout in terms of frequency and intensity as a result of insufficient coping mechanisms. The obtained mean scores of stressors and coping mechanisms had undergone one-way ANOVA to test the null hypothesis as to whether there at least two groups of means that have significant difference. The results showed a p-value less than the level of significance hence, the null hypothesis stating that there are no significant differences in means of groups is rejected. Furthermore, the means of the groups undergone Tukey Kramer Multiple Comparisons to further see if means of groups are all significantly different and the results showed that all means are significantly different the means represents the magnitude of the measure. The comparison would enable the determination of the primary stressor, most frequently adapted coping mechanism and burnout levels.
