Effects of Self-Efficacy, Social Support and Religiosity on Twelfth-Grade Students’ Test Anxiety in Indonesia

National Examination is one annual important agenda in Indonesia’s senior high school, which often creates certain level of anxiety for participating students. This study was conducted to determine the effects of self-efficacy and social support, two factors that have been studied extensively, in predicting twelfth-grade students’ test anxiety in Indonesia. Under the cultural framework of Indonesian society, religiosity variable was added to examine its effect on predicting twelfth-grade students’ test anxiety in Indonesia. Five hundred and fifteen twelfth-grade students, from seven religious affiliated schools in Indonesia, participated in this study. Research results indicated the important role of self-efficacy in predicting twelfth-grade students’ test anxiety (β= -.20, p<.01) as well as the important role of gender in predicting twelfth-grade students’ test anxiety (β= .14, p<.01). The results also indicated that there was a significant positive correlation between mistrust in God and twelfth-grade students’ test anxiety (r(513) = .10, p < .01).
