This research intended to study on the level of Numeracy Competency among high achievers in lower secondary school. For this research, stratified sampling technique was used in order to get 209 respondents participated in this study involving 4 secondary schools from 3 districts in Pahang. The research was done using the quantitative method in the form of a cross-sectional survey. Numeracy test was employed to determine the students’ ability to apply mathematical knowledge and skills in solving problems in the field of Numeracy through four topics, which were Number, Measurement, Geometry and Statistics. The students were categorised into five numeracy levels based on their achievement for the test. Data in the forms of frequency, mean, and percentage were presented using graphs and tables. Research findings showed that most students were in moderate, level 3 to level 1 of numeracy competence. At this level, they had basic knowledge on processes, materials and terminologies. They had some direct skills to complete simple tasks by using few non-routine elements.
