Self-efficacy is a belief that illustrates the ability of the students to organize and use their potential in dealing with situations and problems. Students usually get difficult to manage their potential to solve the problems during learning process, especially in mathematics. Therefore, this study tries to analyse the junior high school students’ self-efficacy as a basis for managing their non-cognitive aspects. The study was conducted in MTS N 2 Pemalang involving 174 students of 8th grade as the respondents. The data were collected using a Likert scale online questionnaire instrument that illustrates the attitude of initiation, persistence and action in the face of learning mathematics. The data obtained were tabulated and analysed using structural equation modelling (SEM) using SmartPLS 3.0. The analysis showed that the act of student initiation reached 68.44 ± 10.98%, while the attitude of persistence reached 69.14 ± 10.23%, and the action in utilizing self-potential was 72.50 ± 12.07%. The contribution of each aspect to self-efficacy is the aspect of initiation by 34.1%, persistence by 19.8% and action by 56.9%. This shows that students still have a low initiation action and are easily experiencing a decrease in interest in learning mathematics, but in terms of execution the action completes the task higher than other aspects. In addition, social environmental problems or peers also have a role in increasing self-efficacy. On average, the self-efficacy of 8th grade students of MTS N2 Pemalang has low self-efficacy.
