The level of students self concept is positive average or negative. While the student’s interpersonal skill level are high, average or low. Students PMR examination results are use as the academic achievement indicator. The results indicated that majority student’s self-concept and interpersonal communication skill are average. Self-concept was found to correlate significantly with interpersonal communication skills but self-concept was not found to correlate at a significant level with academic achievement. Thus, interpersonal communication skills were found to correlate significantly with academic achievement. Suggestions were made to improve the student’s interpersonal communication skills and their self-concept. One of the suggestions is that the communication skills should be introduced as subject teach in school starting from the primary level to develop self-confidence which indirectly affects students self-concept.
