Frontal brain asymmetry is an indicator of brain activity in emotion related behaviours. Left brain activity is responsible for positive emotions and right brain activity is responsible for negative emotions. From previous research studies, it is noticed that anxiety has connection with frontal asymmetry and therefore relationship between frontal asymmetry and test anxiety of school children has been linked in the present study. This study considered test anxiety as a negative emotion and the main focus of the brain area was mid-frontal region. Quasi-Experimental design with pre test and post test (without control group) was used for the study. Relaxation therapy as an intervention programme was given to the sample of average learners with the mean age ranges from (16.20.84) in order to find out the impact on mid-frontal asymmetry. It was found that mid-frontal EEG asymmetry and test anxiety have relationship with each other and relaxation therapy intervention programme can help the children to reduce test anxiety by increasing the left mid-frontal brain activity which is a sign of increase of positive emotions
