This study will focus on the level of academic anxiety of grade 12 senior high school students of De La Salle Medical and Health Sciences Institute 2019- 2020 towards the subject General Physics I. The academic anxiety that will be observed is dependent on the subject General Physics I alone. All other subjects will be excluded in determining the academic anxiety of the students. The academic anxiety will influence the academic performance of the students (Rao B.V., Chaturvedi, 2017). Thus, the data gathered will be interpreted into the results that will determine the influence of academic anxiety to the student’s performance. The breakdown of the student’s grades is confidential, therefore, interpretation of the students’ performance will be limited to their final grade in General Physics I alone. The type of data used is primary data which is collected from the original source or the student themselves. Extraneous or unrelated data, such as the student’s profile or demography will be ignored. Academic performance is solely focused on their final grade. Data will be gathered from a sample size of 60 students from the population of grade 12 senior high school students. Moreover, the number of respondents will be appropriate for the methods that will be used. The study will utilize an anxiety scale called Cognitive Test Anxiety by Dr. Jerrell C. Cassady which is focused on students’ anxiety during examinations. General Physics I examinations comprise 30% of the final grade, therefore, the anxiety scale that the researchers will utilize will prove to be beneficial.
