This is a quantitative research using correlational method. The purpose of this research is to study the relationship between self concept and ability to handle stress on academic achievement of student leaders in University Putra Malaysia. The sample size consists of 106 respondents who are the Student Supreme Council and Student Representative Committee. Tennessee Self Concept Scale (TSCS) was used to evaluate respondents' self concept and for respondents' responses strategy the Response Strategy Questionnaire were used. The respondents' CGPA is used to evaluate their academic achievements. The findings illustrate that there is no significant relationship between self concept and academic achievement. Correlation between self concept and academic achievement is not significant (r = 0.06, p = 0.950). Meanwhile there is a significant relationship between respondents' response strategies and academic achievements X[superscript 2] (10, N = 106) = 19.721, p = 0.032. This would mean that the respondent's response strategy is influenced by his or her academic achievement.
