Abstract

The objective of this study is to identify the level of Communication Apprehension (CA) among final year accounting students particularly in Universiti Tenaga Nasional. This study also aims to test the Personal Report Communication Apprehension (PRCA). This study indicated more than 50% of the highest level of CA for the generalized context pertaining to four contexts in group discussions, meetings, interpersonal and public speaking. However, the study only shows significant difference in overall PRCA among gender. In addition, the main implication for educators is to develop and implement several strategies in teaching styles in reducing fear and anxiety among students.
