Statistics is a critical subject for university students. Their achievement has been negatively impacted by statistical anxiety and the obligation to pass the statistics course. By predicting the achievement of 199 students from one of local higher educational institutions students using statistical anxiety, study mode, gender and programme specialization. A survey was used to select respondents from a variety of programs at a local university. A random sampling technique was applied in administering the questionnaire of Statistical Anxiety Rating Scale. The questionnaire consists of 51 items which has six factors that can be answered using Google form. The descriptive and inferential statistics were used to analyze the data. Statistics anxiety, age, gender, study mode, and program specialization all account for 27 percent of the variation in their achievement. It is possible to improve statistics teaching and learning among university students, despite the fact that the percentage is relatively small. Academic background and previous work experience are important factors to consider when conducting future research with profound statistical understanding.
