Ayesha khan, Shah Alam
The present investigation was undertaken to understand the relationship between academic stress and self-concept of high school students. The present study also examined the difference between government and private high school students on self-concept and academic stress. The sample for the investigation consists of 400 boys and girls from government and private high schools of Aligarh district within the age range of 15-17 years. To examine the self-concept of high school students Self-Concept Questionnaire developed by Dr. R. K. Saraswat (1984) was used which provides six dimensions viz. physical, social, intellectual, moral, educational, and temperamental as well as a total self-concept score. Academic Stress Questionnaire (ASQ) developed by Akram, Ilyas and Sabiha was used to investigate academic stress. Findings showed statistically significant negative correlation between academic stress and self-concept. Private school students are significantly better on moral self-concept and temperamental self-concept. Private and government high school students are significantly differed only on one dimension of academic stress i.e. inadequate academic environment in the college.
