Mathematics is often considered as one of difficult subject at school. It causes many students feel anxious when facing this subject. One of the factors that can affect mathematical anxiety is students' belief on their own ability which is called self-efficacy. The purpose of this study is to determine the influence of self-efficacy to anxiety when they are encountered with Mathematics subject. The proposed hypothesis is that self-efficacy has significant effect to mathematical anxiety experienced by junior high school students in YDM Learning Guidance Course Makassar. The population of this study were 75 students of grade VII, VIII, and IX of YDM Learning Guidance Course, and 30 among them were purposively selected as the participants. Self-efficacy scale adapted from Bandura and anxiety scale adapted from Holmes were utilized as instruments to collect the data. The validity test result of self-efficacy and anxiety scales was above 0.30 (valid), while the result of reliability test yielded 0.90 on self-efficacy scale and 0.923 on anxiety scale. Furthermore, the data were statistically tested by using regression test. The result showed that the significance value p = 0.001 (<0.05), which means that there was a significant effect of self-efficacy to mathematical anxiety of junior high school students in YDM Learning Guidance Makassar.
