The main objective of this research was to investigate the differences in future anxiety among male and female secondary school students from two schooling systems in Jeddah province. The first schooling system was the typical one whereas the same course was divided and taught in two semesters (The Annual one). The second schooling system (the newly developed one), is similar to university system where students study different courses in each semester (The Courses’ System). The study subjects consisted of (100) male twelfth grade students and (100) female twelfth grade students.
