Abstract: Schools have been forced to introduce new learning styles due to the recent pandemic crisis as a result of the necessity to cope with the epidemic in order to cope with the situation. While this new learning environment will certainly result in a number of students being able to adapt to it successfully, the extent to which they will be able to do so will be different from student to student, since most of them are being exposed to this type of environment for the first time. In this research, the aim of the study was to assess the degree to which the students were able to adjust to the new ways of learning in order to assess the level of adaptation. Based on the availability of their schools in the survey, we conducted a survey of all students across all schools in Asia, out of which 850 of them were randomly sampled across all schools in Asia in accordance with their accessibility. Data was collected by means of a questionnaire that was developed by the researcher in order to collect the data required for the research project. It should be noted that the respondents in this study were not subjected to any coercions for participating in the study, and therefore all ethical issues were considered when participating. We answered the research questions by using means, and hypothesis one was tested by using quantitative techniques at a significance level of 0.08, in order for the hypothesis to be tested. The majority of the students found distance education to be an uncomfortable and a data-consuming experience at the beginning of the study, as it was established during the course of the study. According to the research conducted by the author, the ability of students enrolled in public schools compared to those enrolled in private schools to adapt to new learning methods was significantly different between those enrolled in public and private schools. In conclusion, it was found that students are getting used to the new learning style introduced by their schools as a result of the fact that they only have that option of learning in their schools.
