The present study aimed to predict high school students ʼ Test Anxiety based on Perfectionism dimensions. The population of the study included junior high school students of humanistic sciences, science and mathematics in Tabriz. The sample consisted of 168 people who were selected by cluster random sampling method. The Spiel berger Anxiety Test and the Multidimensional Perfectionism Scale (MPS) were administered. Correlation test and regression analysis were used for analyzing data .The results indicated there was significant positive relationship between perfectionism and test anxiety. The study also showed that, the dimensions of perfectionism (Self- oriented, Other-oriented, Socially- oriented) have positive significant relationship with test anxiety. The results of the regression analysis indicated that from three dimensions of perfectionism, the socially- oriented dimension predicts the test anxiety in students. The results of the independent t test showed that there was significant difference between two groups (girls and boys) in test anxiety. The mean of test anxiety in girls was more than boys. The findings can be helpful for researchers in studying and exploring the influential role of personality factors on students’ test anxiety.
