Aims:  This study investigated Achievement Motivation as a mediator of the relationship between Test Anxiety and Locus of Control with Academic Achievement between Test Anxiety and Locus of Control. Method: Correlation studies based on structural equation modeling technique, in particular regression equations (combining path analysis and factor analysis second). A total of 508 students (255 boys and 253 girls) were selected by simple random sampling. Hermans achievement motivation inventory, Test Anxiety Questionnaire and Rotter·s Locus of Control Scale were used to collect data. GPA was as academic achievement.
