This study aimed to compare the stress experienced by academically talented students from three types of schools; mainstream schools, residential schools, and Mara Junior College MARA (MRSM). The difference in stress can be seen by the differences in the mean which are categorized as high, medium and low. The relationship between the stress variables with gender and type of school and its contribution to the academically talented students can also be seen in this study. A total of 177 selected samples, the sample consisted of students who earn all A distinction in all subjects taken at the PMR examination. Correlations and Multiple Regression were used to examine the relationship and interaction between two variables by gender and type of school. The results showed that gender and school type did not affect the stress. However, academically talented students from the MRSM are seen to receive the highest stress. Stress is also seen to contribute only 0.6% of the students' academic achievement.
