The population of the study was all students in one of vocational senior high school in Kota Bengkulu, with a sample of 85 students. The sample was selected by the random technique. Data collection was carried out using the instruments of questionnaire and test of mathematics understanding ability. It was used to measure students' anxiety and cognitive level of mathematics understanding. Data were analyzed using inferential statistics. The result of the study showed that an increase in anxiety is associated with a decrease in the ability to understand mathematics.
