    ABSTRACT: Depression is a state of low mood characterized by depressed mood, loss of interest or pleasure, decreased energy of the person, feelings of guilt, low self-esteem, and poor concentration. These problems could become chronic or repetitive and lead to substantial impairments in an individual’s skills in relation to the daily care responsibilities, and depression can lead a person to make suicide. The present study aims: H1: Low academic success at the university has negative correlation with depression; H2: Girls tend to show more depressive symptoms compared with boys. This study included 102 students, conveniently selected by the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Prishtina “Hasan Prishtina” in Kosovo. As reported in the results section and after discussed, the findings (partially) support our hypotheses. More specifically, a correlation analysis showed that: Low success affects the appearance of depressive symptoms. Furthermore, an independent- sample t-test showed that: there are no significant differences regarding to the gender in the appearance of depressive symptoms.
