This study aims to identify the relationship between motivation and the achievement of Physical Education subjects based in secondary schools in the Tawau district. This quantitative study uses the survey method to answer the research objectives. A total of 250 2nd-grade students were identified as respondents to answer the questionnaire. This study uses a questionnaire instrument adapted from "The Sports Motivation Scale (SMS-28) to measure the level of student motivation. In contrast, the achievement of Physical Education subjects is measured by using the achievement grade that the Malaysian Ministry of Education has set. The student's motivation relationship result shows the mean motivation level = 4.21, SP = 0.880. In contrast, the subject achievement is obtained through data collection from the mid-semester summative assessment of 2022, which is mean = 60.00, SP = 14.064. The results of the study found that there was no significant relationship between the level of motivation and the achievement of Physical Education subjects (r = 0.050, p > 0.05). Therefore, the school needs to play an important role in influencing student involvement and motivation in physical education subjects .
