Abstract—The objective of this research was to investigate the relationship between self-efficacy, self-regulation, test anxiety and motivation as well as the relationship between test anxiety and academic performance. Twenty-four students of Computer Science in year two of their studies were examined in this study. Self-efficacy was found to be highly correlated with cognitive strategy use and self-regulation indicating that students who report high in self-regulation also applied cognitive strategy and self-efficacy in achieving their goals. The results also revealed that students that report high in self-regulation are more likely to report high in cognitive strategy use. Furthermore, the result of the study revealed that there is high correlation between test anxiety and academic outcomes.
