Abstract: This study examined sell‘-concept and academic performance_s of NCE Ill Students in Colleges of Education in Adamawa State. It was conceived in order to understand the parameter of sell'- concept as a determinant of academic performance among this category of students. Thus, two research questions and two hypothesis were drawn as guides for the study. The NCE ll CGPA and the teaching practice results of 384 NCE Ill students who were categorized as having positive and negative sell‘-concept using I Self-Concept Inventory Questionnaire (SCIQ) were used. The reliability of the SCIQ was found to be 0.76. The analysis of the data using mean score, standard deviation and t-test of independent samples showed that there was a significant difference between the mean score of students with positive self-~concept and that of students with negative self-concept. The mean scores were based on the performances of students in theory papers and teaching practice. Based on the findings, it was recommended that necessary conditions be created for the development of positive self-concept in students especially those of Colleges of Education. This is particularly important because prospective teachers and those in training need to acquire substantial knowledge and skills to enable them pass same to those learners under their supervision for a better society.
