Abstract :

Students in their college years confront many obstacles. One of the main problems they face is how to deal with anxiety especially study anxiety, which in turn affect their adjustment to college (Vitasari, Wahab, Othman, Herawan and Sinnadurai, 2010). Hence, the present study was done to find the differences in Test anxiety and Educational adjustment of the Engineering students and arts students and to find the relationship between them. Using purposive sampling, 70 students [35 arts and 35 engineering] were selected. Test Anxiety Scale and Educational Adjustment sub–scale of the Adjustment inventory for college students by Sinha and Singh were the tools used. It was found that None of the students had Excellent Education Adjustment. 50% of the sample had Unsatisfactory Educational Adjustment and 11% of the sample had very unsatisfactory adjustment. The mean differences in Educational adjustment (t= 0.248) and Test Anxiety (t= 0.635) of the Engineering and Arts students was not statistically significant. Very High Anxiety was present in 7% of the samples and 13% had High Anxiety. Moderate Anxiety was found in 40% and low Anxiety in 4% of the sample. The correlation between Educational Adjustment and Test Anxiety (r=–0.04489) indicated a weak and non–significant negative correlation.
