Descriptive statistics and independent t-test, ANOVA and correlation coefficient were performed at statistical significance level of 0.05. Results: The mean academic self-efficacy in boys was 107/75 (standard deviation [SD] = 16/10) and in girls 107/19 (SD = 15/82). The Pearson correlation test results showed that there was a statistically significant relationship between age with academic self-efficacy (P = 0.001, r = 0.170). Independent t-test results indicate that there is no significant statistical relationship between self-efficacy and location.
