Anxiety is an excited state of nervous system as a result of which sense of tension, nervousness and worry is being inflicted on individual (Spielberger,1983). In the modern time it is considered as a major predictor of academic performance (McCraty, 2007 and McCraty, et al., 2000). Reason being clear that world has become a place of great unnatural competition and academic achievements are seen as a bench mark of success in one’s life. Sample of 50 secondary school students from various schools of Noida were selected for the study. A standardised tool was used to collect the anxiety scores and CGP of the students in their previous classes, obtained from school records were taken as an index of their academic achievement. Later CGP was converted in to percentage marks. Present study is planned to find out difference as well as relationship in between the academic anxiety and academic achievement with respect to gender and religion respectively. Results of this study clearly revealed that, no significant difference is found in the academic anxiety and academic achievement of male and female students respectively. Similarly, no significant difference is found in the academic anxiety. Though, a significant and negative relationship is seen among the academic anxiety and the academic achievement. It is also inferred from the findings that a moderate level of anxiety is desired in order to excel in the academics, and when anxiety crosses the limit academic achievement decreases significantly.
