This study aims to determine the effective contribution of Adversity Quotient and Academic Self-efficacy as predictors of academic stress in grade 10 students at SMK “X”. The research method used is a quantitative approach with a total population of 671 students in grade 10 and a total of 170 students. The scale used to collect data in this study is the Adversity Quotient Scale to measure student adversity quotient, the Academic Self-efficacy Scale (TASES) to measure student academic self-efficacy, and the Educational Stress Scale for Adolescents (ESSA) to measure student academic stress. The data analysis used is multiple linear regression analysis technique to test whether the independent variables have an influence on the dependent variable simultaneously or partially. The results of the F-test calculations show that simultaneously there is a significant influence between the adversity quotient and academic self-efficacy on academic stress. The results of the calculation of the T-test on the adversity quotient variable show that the adversity quotient independent variable partially has an influence on academic stress. The results of the calculation of the T-test on academic self-efficacy variables show that the independent variable academic self-efficacy has partially an influence on academic stress. The effective contribution of each independent variable to the dependent variable, namely the adversity quotient for academic stress, is 20.14%, while academic self-efficacy for academic stress is 16.00%.
