    I don't know what you are trying to say. How is a small amount of money "psychological" or "economic?"

    If I get it right the following could probably be correct: A small amount of money which are physcial, psycholigical, and economic economy can cause many effects affect students' life in all aspects.

    This still doesn't make sense as for me.

    Exactly, because "money" is singular, so use "is" instead of "are".

    You said the money "are physcial,psycholigical and economic."

    Is that what you mean to say? Or do you mean to say that the effects are physical, psychological and economic?

    Even a small amount of money can have a big physical, psychological, and economic impact on a student.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
