Regression analysis showed that academic motivation is significantly mediated the relationship between self-efficacy and test anxiety. In particular, test anxiety is fully mediated by belief in personal ability, whereas belief in ability grows with effort is marginally mediated. The findings were examined in terms of their implications for lowering test anxiety in demanding educational systems where students are expected to sit for a succession of high-stakes public tests.
