The Performance Failure Appraisal Inventory (PFAI) questionnaire and an open-ended questionnaire were distributed to 25 Physical Education students. The data were analyzed by using descriptive data analysis. The result shows that 8% of the students were in the high level of fear of failure, 20% students were in quiet high level of fear of failure, 8% were in the moderate level of fear of failure, 36% were in the low level of fear of failure, and 28% of the students were in very low level of fear of failure. The finding also shows that there were three techniques the participants used to decrease their fear, including relaxation, positive thinking, and focus on the competition. It concludes that most of Physical Education College students’ fear of failure levels do not exceed the moderate level. It indicates that the students might have been able to control their fear by doing the three techniques before competition.
