Background: Medical MBBS students are facing challenges in the unprecedented global crisis due to coronavirus disease-19 (COVID -19) pandemic. They are also facing stress and anxiety and finding up various mode to cope up, learn, and acquire knowledge.

Aims and Objectives: We wanted to assess the advantages and disadvantages of online teaching as well as behavioral changes in medical students as a result of lockdown due to COVID-19.

Materials and Methods: Online questionnaire-based study was conducted in 112 MBBS students. The questionnaire comprised demographics, addiction history, behavioral changes, sleep disturbances, e-learning through online classes, and relaxation techniques used to combat the behavioral changes associated with COVID-19 lockdown.

Results: We found that in lockdown period, the arrogance/irritation increased in 42% of students, 48.2% observed more anger, frustration, lack of energy, loneliness, and 50.9% were more anxious for little things, whereas 65.2% of students worried about future.

Conclusion: We concluded that there is increase in level of stress and anxiety among MBBS students.
