The present study is an attempt to study the achievement motivation of secondary school students in relation to their self-efficacy. A sample of 600 (300 male and 300 female) secondary school students was taken on the basis of multi-stage random sampling. Self-Efficacy Scale by Dahiya and Kumari (2018); and Achievement Motivation Scale (n-Ache) by Deo and Mohan (2018) were used to collect the data. Mean, Standard Deviation, ‘t’ test and Karl Pearson’s Product Moment Coefficient Correlation were used to analyse the data. It was found that achievement motivation of secondary school students with high self-efficacy are found more achievement motivated than those secondary school students with low self-efficacy and a significant and positive relationship between achievement motivation and self-efficacy of secondary school students. The present study will be very helpful to the educational planners, policy makers, administrators, teacher-educators and parents in particular and society in general in bringing about improvement in various skills of the secondary school students by strengthening their self-efficacy and achievement-motivation.
