Most of these equipment and technologies are in minimal supply and as such, when a classroom is overcrowded, there are those who do not get to access them. These and other issues that are associated with overcrowded rooms negatively impact the performance of students and in general affects the institution as well.

The noise that emanates from such a room builds up stress, also becoming an issue that affects the health of the student. Therefore, when the overcrowding is resolved, less stressful moments will be avoided and students can build up positive emotions in a healthy environment.

For instance, having a lot of homework to deal will lead to students lacking enough sleep, losing weight and failing in their exams. These effects of having to deal with work overload, causes students to be compelled to dealing with stress.
