Abstract: To determine what effects the field of study has on the performances of learners at the pre-university level in reading achievement and reading proficiency and to find out the relationship between learners' performances on reading achievement and reading proficiency test, 150 female and male subjects were selected randomly from each field of study (Mathematics, Natural sciences, and Humanities) with equal proportions. Two types of comparison were made: between-group and within-group comparisons. The results showed that there was no significant relationship between the performances of learners majoring in different fields of study in the two reading tests. Moreover, the results showed that there was no significant relationship between the learners' performances in reading achievement test and their performances in reading proficiency test. There were no significant relationships either between-group or within-group comparisons. Major-based field of study made no significant differences in the performances of subjects in the two reading tests, that is, reading achievement and reading proficiency.
