To meet the study objective, Self-Concept of Ability Scale was administered to151 students in a state university. The scale consisted of 8, 5-point Likert- type items to measure students' self-concept in English. Students were asked some demografic questions about their age, gender and English language level. Descriptive research was carried out in the study.
