    The Warwick-Edinburgh Mental Well-being Scale (WEMWBS) is a validated measuring tool used to assess mental well-being in individuals aged 13 to 74. The study aims to determine if there is a correlation between the Wellness Score of First Year Graduation students and their grades in examinations. Methodology: The study uses a correlational research design, involving 100 female students from prestigious universities in Delhi. The scale has been validated and has demonstrated good reliability and validity for assessing mental well-being. The findings will contribute valuable insights and knowledge to the existing literature in the field of mental well-being and health care policy. Results: The WEMWBS scale, developed by Tennant et al. (2007), measures mental well-being among students. The study found a significant association between students' wellness score (mental well-being i.e. stress levels) and their grades in examination. The average age of students was 20.17±0.89 years, with a majority of them being females. The average study hours were 4.15 ± 1.29 hours per day. The WEMWBS score demonstrated correlation between the score and students' grades. Discussion and Conclusion: The study highlights the need for public health initiatives to promote health and healthy lifestyles among young professionals, as well as to establish mechanisms for the dissemination of population-based interventions and assess their effectiveness. Regular physical activity has been proposed as a means to prevent depression and enhance mental well-being.
