The present research aims to measure the relationship of religious affiliation and gender with students' test anxiety. The research method is a descriptive one of the correlative type. For this purpose, as many as 390 students (200 girls and 190 boys) from the students of Qom high schools were selected through quota sampling. The research tool included Religious Affiliation Questionnaire (M. Janbozorgi) and Test Anxiety Scale (TAS; Sarason, I978). To make an analysis of the data, Pearson correlation coefficient, regression analysis and t test independent groups were used. Religious affiliation questionnaire includes three factors: religious affiliation, religious ambivalence and religious non-affiliation; The results of present research showed that there is not a meaningful relationship between factor religious affiliation and test anxiety, but there is a meaningful relationship between factors of non-religious affiliation and religious ambivalence with test anxiety. Also the results showed that there is not a meaningful relationship between gender and test anxiety, but there is a meaningful relationship between total religious affiliation and test anxiety (r=-0/211). Thus religious affiliation has some effects on decreasing students' test anxiety.
