The current study was conducted to assess the self-esteem and academic performance among university students after arising of several behavioral and educational problems. A total number of 80 students, 40 male students and 40 female students were selected through purposive sampling from G. C. University Faisalabad. The participants were administered Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale and Academic Performance Rating Scale to measure their self-esteem and academic performance. The score of male and female students was compared. Pearson's Product Moment and the t-test were used for statistical significance of data. It was found that there was a significant relationship (r = 0.879, p<0.01) between self-esteem and academic performance. Moreover a significant difference was found between male and female students on self-esteem and academic performance scores, which indicate that female students have high scores on academic performance as compared to male students and male students have high scores on self-esteem as compared to female students.
