Metacognitive reading strategies and test anxiety questionnaires  were completed by students. In this study, data were analyzed  by software SPSS 20 and Pearson correlation  where canonical analysis was used.

Results:The data indicate  three sets of canonical correlation dimension, metacognitive reading strategies are significantly correlated with test anxiety (The relationship of the second set 0.57, P<0.001; the relationship of the second set 0.43, P<0.001; and the relationship of the third set 0.09, P<0.004). These results indicate that students who use cognitive learning strategies experience less test anxiety.
