The major purpose of this study is to investigate the relationship between the academic self-efficacy and performance of the engineering students with preparatory and non-preparatory strands of Eastern Visayas State University -Ormoc City Campus school year 2020 -2021. Based on the standardized multidimensional self-efficacy scale and academic performance developed by bandura, it was used to determine the respondent’s academic self-efficacy and performance. A total of 78 students participated in the survey equally distributed from three different programs the Bachelor of science in Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering. The academic self-efficacy of both preparatory and non-preparatory students varies from low to high, while academic performance indicates that preparatory students have a higher mean grade than non-preparatory students. In comparison to its non-preparatory strand equivalent, the preparatory group showed and demonstrated a significant relationship between self-efficacy and academic performance in terms of subscale test taking. In terms of self-efficacy and academic performance, there was no significant difference between the preparatory and non-preparatory strands for self-efficacy, but a significant difference between the preparatory and non-preparatory strands for academic performance.
