Abstract

Academic Anxiety and General Wellbeing: A Comparative Study among High School Students of Rohtak, India

John Njue and Madhu Anand

The aim of this study was to study the relationship between academic anxiety and general wellbeing and compare the results of boys with girls. To do this Academic Anxiety Scale for Children (AASC) and PGI General Wellbeing Measure (PGIGWM) were administered to a sample of 204 high school students. Before that, it had been hypothesized that the correlation between academic anxiety and general wellbeing would be negative in both boys and girls and that there would be no significant difference between academic anxiety in boys as compared to girls and finally there would be no significant difference between general wellbeing of boys with that of girls. After the administration of the scales the data was analyzed by computing Pearson correlation, mean and t-values. The results showed that the correlation between academic anxiety and general wellbeing was negative in both boys and girls proving the first two hypotheses true. In addition, the results also showed that there was no significant difference between academic anxiety in boys as compared to girls and there was be no significant difference between general wellbeing of boys with that of girls also proving the third and fourth hypotheses and null hypothesis true. All the findings have been shown and given meanings accordingly and some suggestions have been recommended for future research.
