Abstract

World has become a place of great unnatural competition and academic achievements are a bench of success in student life. To achieve greater success, students must taste the cut-throat contention, which in turn makes them anxious, worried, and sometimes poor performers too. Students with high levels of anxiety show passive attitude towards studies, lack of concentration and confidence, reduced memory span and poor reasoning abilities These psychological symptoms ultimately affect the potential to achieve good grades and significantly interferes with the daily routine of the student too.

Findings of the study clearly showed that significant difference existed in the levels of anxiety between boys and girls, Girls were more prone to anxiety than that of boys. Mahajan (2015) revealed in their study that no significant difference existed in the academic anxiety of male and female secondary school students moreover a significant difference is found in the academic anxiety of government and private secondary students. He also reported that academic stress was significantly and negatively correlated to parental encouragement. Shakir (2014) made a correlational study between academic anxiety and academic achievement based on gender. Findings clearly showed a negative relationship between academic anxiety and achievement. Gender also affects the anxiety; females were more anxious than male. Kumar& Kumar (2014) investigated the relationship between academic anxiety and academic achievement, in their study on senior secondary students and reported a negative and significant relationship between anxiety and academic achievement.
