The aim of the study is to compare the state and trait anxiety situations of social science students and fine arts students during the exam period.145 of the State and Trait anxiety inventory administered surveys of students were assessed. Independent t- test was used for statistical procedures. During the exam period, while the status scores of the students studying fine arts were 49.57 with the continuity score of 23.72, status scores of social studies students that do not study fine arts were found to be 51.25 with the continuity score of 27.02. It has been found that status and the continuity score of the students studying fine arts is significantly lower than students not studying fine arts (p<0.05). In all students, it can be said that there is a high level of state anxiety and low level of continuing concern during the examination period. In addition, the education of fine arts at universities can reduce the anxiety level of students. Students who do not have arts education can take art lessons or participate in creative activities. All students are advised to take precautions to reduce their situational anxiety concerns during the examination periods.
