The article presents the relationship between the academic self-concept and the students’ performance in literary subject. The present study is aimed at investigating the relationship between the academic self-concept and the students’ academic performance in a literary subject. In order to determine whether students have a high score of academic self- concept or low academic self-concept, the writer administered a questionnaire on academic self-concept developed by Liu and Wang (2005). Accordingly, there were two groups of students selected as the low and high academic self-concept participants. By analyzing the academic self-concept developed by Liu and Wang (2005), this groups were divided into the group of students with high academic self-concept level and a group of the students with low academic self concept. Sixty three students enrolling the subject participated in the study. For the study, Literary Criticism subject (LC) was chosen as the object of the study, considering that the students had previously taken a pre-requisite literary subject named Introduction to literature so that in the current level they have been able to evaluate, describe, and analyze literary works. The study revealed a finding that students’ academic self-concept has a dominant impact on the students in accomplishing goals in the literary subject. The students with high academic self-concept tend to get good comprehension when reading literary works. The grades of those who were classified as High were higher than those of the students with Low academic self concept.
