The current study examined the relationship of test anxiety with trait anxiety, study habits, and self-esteem among the twelfth standard students. The sample comprised of 263 twelfth standard students (males = 118 and females = 145). Students responded to a set of four questionnaires, which included the Test Anxiety Inventory (TAI), Trait Anxiety Scale (TAS), Study Habits Inventory (SHI), and Self-esteem Scale (SES). The results showed that test anxiety was correlated positively with trait anxiety but negatively with regular study habits and self-esteem. Besides, girls scored higher test anxiety as compared to boys. Overall, students of both the sex reported higher test anxiety.
