A total of 100 candidates (equal number of males and females) aspiring for civil services were selected. The result of correlation analysis revealed that test anxiety, worry and emotionality are positively related to self-distraction and behaviour disengagement aspects of problem-focused coping as well as denial, religion, and self-blame aspects of emotion-focused coping. The test anxiety and worry are significantly related to venting, and emotionality alone is positively and significantly related to the use of emotional support aspect of emotion-focused coping and the use of instrumental support aspect of problem-focused coping. Achievement motivation has been found to be significantly and negatively related only to the humor aspect of emotion-focused coping. Relevant discussion has been presented.
