Abstract

Purpose: The aim of this research paper is to show that Final examination pressure causes anxiety in all students, including students of a private middle school in Yogyakarta. The anxiety of students facing the final examinations is directly related to self-efficacy and peer support.


Methodology: This study uses scales to determine anxiety levels preceding final exams, self-efficacy levels, and peer support levels. These scales will be filled in with data given by 9th grade students of LI Private Junior High. The research subjects consisted of 234 9th grade students enrolled in one of Yogyakarta’s private middle schools.


Results: Based on the results, this research shows that Self-efficacy and peer support both combined have a significant relation to the anxiety preceding final exams faced by 9th grade students of ‘LI’ private middle school in Yogyakarta with F = 10,644 and a significance level of 0,000 (p<0,01).


Implications: Therefore, peer support has an effect on anxiety only when applied in tandem with self-efficacy.
