The need to satisfy the demand for higher scholastic achievement in the senior secondary phase should be a priority for educators. Factors that play a role in scholastic achievement are the self-concept and the time-concept of learners. Previous research by this author has shown that there are differences in the time-concept and self-concept of high achievers and low achievers. The aim of this research was to investigate the time-concept in terms of a high and a low self-concept of Grade 11 learners and that of their parents. The results showed that the time-concept of a person with a high self-concept differs from the time-concept of a person with a low self-concept. Furthermore, with a given self-concept (high or low), it was found that there were minute differences in the time-concept of learners and the time-concept of their parents.
