Metacognition is a multi-dimensional concept that including knowledge, processes, and strategies for appraisal, monitoring, and control of cognition. The aim of this research was to investigate the relationship between Anxiety syndrome and OCD Symptoms and metacognitive beliefs in nonclinical population. 327 students (145 males and 182 females) were selected from University of medical science Lorestan using cluster-random sampling. All of the subjects were asked to answer demographic questions and the Beck Anxiety and Maudsely OCD Symptoms questionnaire as well as Wells and Cartwright metacognitive questionnaire. The data were analyzed by Pearson’s correlation coefficient and multivariate regression analysis. Research findings showed significant positive relationships between metacognitive beliefs and Anxiety syndrome and OCD Symptoms. In other words, individuals with higher scores in metacognitive scale revealed worse Anxiety syndrome and OCD Symptoms status. There was also a significant relationship between total scores of both scales and scores on uncontrollability, positive beliefs, cognitive confidence and need to control thoughts and cognitive self-consciousness (P<0.001). Metacognitive beliefs are effective factors in general health. Also, it is possible to promote students’ mental health by changing metacognition beliefs which enhance maladaptive and negative thinking styles or general negative beliefs.
