of adolescents and their associations with academic achievement: Accordingly,

by Beck self-concept inventory, Coopersmith self-esteem inventory, Spielberger
State-Trait anxiety inventory, Beck depression inventory. Results indicate
that self-concept is correlated with self-esteem and these two have positive
impacts on augment of academic achievement. Moreover, the increase of
self-concept and self-esteem are related to the decrease of anxiety and
a negative significant relation exists between self-concept, self-esteem
