Since the fatigue can affect the examination result, patients should not perfom heavy activities during 24 hours before the examination. Objective :to know the difference of total cholesterol level on fasting and non fasting patients. Method :it was an analytical research with one group pre and posttest design. This research was conducted in March 2020. The population were all the 1st and 2nd grade students of the Medical Laboratory Technology  Department of Health Polytechnic of Palembang. Samples were taken by simple random sampling. Paired t-test was used as a statistic analysis. Pursuant to result t test of data obtained by p value = 0,134 (p > 0,05) means there is no significant difference of fasting cholesterol levels and non-fasting cholesterol levels.
