In this study, it is aimed to examine the speaking and writing anxiety levels of gifted students according to various variables. For this purpose, the study group consists of 50volunteer students who continue their education in a Science and Art Center (BİLSEM) in Turkey and come to the school on the days of the study. The study was designed in the survey model and carried out according to the quantitative research method. In the study, the "Speaking Anxiety Scale" developed by Gündüz and Demir (2020) for secondary school students was used to determine the speaking anxiety of gifted students, and the "Writing Anxiety Scale for Secondary School Students" developed by Karakuş Tayşi and Taşkın (2018) was used to determine their writing anxiety. The data were analyzed using the SPSS 26 package program. For analysis, t-Test and One Way Anova Test, which is one-way analysis of variance, were used from parametric tests. As a result of the study, it was determined that the writing and speaking anxiety levels of the gifted students were moderate, and the students do not differ according to their gender, grade level, school type and BİLSEM program they are studying. In the study, it is suggested that more studies should be done on the speaking and writing anxiety of gifted students.
