The novel SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus caused a large-scale Coronavirus disease of 2019 (COVID-19) epidemic all over the world. COVID-19 is an infectious disease that spreads primarily through droplets of saliva or discharge from the nose when an infected person coughs or sneezes, and through the touch. The infected person may leave the virus on the surfaces where he/she touches. Social distancing is the only way to restrict the spread is the disease. As a precautionary measure, the boarding colleges vacated its hostels and closed the colleges. It was a sudden decision when students could not get time to collect their study material while going home. The evacuation was indefinite and was totally dependent on the COVID-19 spread. The students were not aware about their syllabus completion, examination and no clear-cut idea of the study. Hence, it was felt necessary to study their psychological condition and preparation of their study during this unfamiliar situation. It was also felt necessary to know about their own concept about their preparation in lockdown period. Hence, a online study was conducted through a Google form which was circulated through WhatsApp of students and staff of all colleges under the all four Universities in Maharashtra. The responses for the same are discussed in the present paper.
