ABSTRACT

The present study is based on Academic anxiety. The aim of the study is to find out the difference between religion and gender, regarding academic anxiety for the purpose of the study, 120 School children were chosen from different school at Kapadwanj town, Gujarat, for data collection in all 120 student, 60 being boys (30 Hindu +30 Muslim ) and 60 girls (30 Hindu + 30 Muslim ). 

Generally anxiety can be either a trait anxiety or a state anxiety. A trait anxiety is a stable characteristic or trait of the person. A state anxiety is one which is aroused by some temporary condition of the environment such as examination, accident, punishment, etc. Academic anxiety is a kind of state anxiety which relates to the impending danger from the environments of the academic institution including teacher, certain subjects like Mathematics, English, etc.

I have used ‘Academic Anxiety Scale for children’ (AASC Scale) by Dr. A. k. Singh & Dr. (km) A.  Sen Gupta. The obtained data analyzed through Mann-Whitney ‘ U ‘ test. The result shows that there was no significant difference between the Academic anxiety of Muslim boys & girls and Hindu girls & Muslim girls. There is more Academic anxiety in Hindu girls then Hindu boys and more Academic anxiety in Muslim boys then Hindu boys.
