As the number of online-learning users continues to increase, there is a need to understand the Effect of Self-efficacy, Motivation and Anxiety on Online Academic Performance. Through the online learning process, students can access the given information of teachers at any time on the respective online platform. The study aims to find out the Effect of Self-efficacy, Motivation and Anxiety on Online Academic Performance. It is comparatively more convenient in the current situation, because of the pandemic; every educational institute follows this learning method for properly giving education or lessons to their students. The study included 150 participants studying various courses at an Indian University. The mean age of participants was 19 years. The study consisted of 3 scales, the academic self-efficacy scale, the academic motivation scale and the state trait anxiety inventory. The researcher carried out a descriptive study to identify the aim of the study. Independent sample t-test and Mann-Whitney U test were carried out and the results of the study were analysed for the mentioned hypothesis. The study found that the mean scores of academic performances dropped in the individuals with low self-efficacy. Also, the mean scores of academic performances dropped in the individuals with low motivation. These differences were not significant. However, it was found out that the individuals with high anxiety saw a significant drop in their academic performances. Hence the study shows that anxiety had a great effect on the levels of academic performance of students.
