In psychology, self-esteem is a concept that is largely used and analysed in the scientific literature. The goal of this study is to assess, with validated instruments, the corollary links between students’ academic results and the nature of perceptions of their skills and self-esteem. A total of 255 student volunteers with an average age of 21 years (91 female students and 164 male students) were included. We opted for two types of surveys: a questionnaire (SEQ) developed by Duclos, which measures self-esteem in five domains, and a questionnaire on the perception of competence on three domains of training. According to the results, even though students displayed a low sense of competence in the face of modest results during training, their self-esteem in the ‘family and social’ domains stayed stable with good scores. The study concludes that every person achieves high self-esteem when they achieve successes that are equal to or greater than their ambitions.
