The significance of the English language in attaining academic success can never be underestimated. Since English has been recognized as the foundation of all academic knowledge in the educational system, the development of the learners’ competence in the language has to be given importance. This study explored on the students’ level of competence in linguistics and their relationship to their academic performance in English. There were 66 students selected as respondents using the stratified sampling method and there were three statistical tools used to treat the data: the mean and standard deviation, the t-test and the Pearson Product Moment Correlation Coefficient or Pearson r. Findings revealed that the students’ linguistic competence had significant relationship with their academic performance in English. Hence, the level of students’ competence in linguistics is a predictor of the students’ academic success in the subject.
