Metacognition has been developing into a key word of the English as Foreign Language (EFL) study in the previous two decades. The present paper probed into the relationship between students’ metacognitive awareness and their performance in the EFL achievement test. By the employment of the Matecognitive Awarness Inventory (MAI), data analysis showed that students’ MAI scores had a significant correlation with their grades in the Chinese National English level test (Band 4). The result indicated that language learners showing general higher metacognitive awareness performed better in the achivement test. The investigation proved the positive relationshipe between students’ metacognitive awareness, especially in the factor of knowledge of cognition, and their accomplishment in EFL study. The paper then proposed that proper integration of metacognition cultivation with university English education should be an effective strategy in promoting students’ fulfillment in EFL study.
