In preparation for K-12, Philippine Normal University pioneered a curriculum in the Philippines known as the Outcomes-based Teacher Education Curriculum (OBTEC). The changes in the said curriculum intensified the academic demands for the students. This research examined the academic self-efficacy of students under outcomes-based curriculum using the College Academic Self-efficacy Scale by Owen and Froman (1988). The respondents were 300 students composed of freshmen and sophomores of Philippine Normal University. This study affirmed that students under OBTEC have a low academic self-efficacy.
