Among the 61 sample size, 45 (72.58%) respondents had minimal to mild anxiety level and 17 (27.42%) had moderate to extreme anxiety level. Among the 31 allied health graduates, 26 (56.52%) had minimal to mild anxiety level and 5 (31.25%) had moderate to extreme anxiety level. On the other hand, among 31 the non-allied health graduates, 20(43.48%) had minimal to mild anxiety level and 11 (68.75%) had moderate to extreme anxiety level. The prevalence of moderate to extreme anxiety among allied health graduates was 0.16 and the prevalence ratio of moderate to extreme anxiety among the non-allied health graduate respondents was 0.35.
