English is very important especially for SMK 4, which has majors in information and communication technology (ICT). TeachersÔÇÖ competence can influence studentsÔÇÖ achievement. Teacher's personality competence can be seen directly and perceived by students in the class. The research aims to investigate the correlation between studentsÔÇÖ perception toward English teachersÔÇÖ personality competence and studentsÔÇÖ english final semester exam score. This research used a correlation research design. The subject of this study is class XI at SMK 4 Malang in the first semester of the 2018/2019 academic year. There is a total of 137 students from four classes selected as samples. The instruments used were in the form of questionnaires and the studentsÔÇÖ English final semester exam scores. The data obtained were processed using the Rank Spearman correlation test with SPSS 17.0. The findings showed that there is a negative correlation between students' perceptions toward English teachersÔÇÖ personality competence and final semester exam score. The computed value of the correlation coefficient is -.189. It is categorized as a very low correlation. The researcher found that the reasons of the very low and negative correlation are mainly because: 1) the studentsÔÇÖ perception data was homogenous while the final semester exam score data was heterogeneous, 2) There are other factors that influence studentsÔÇÖ perception and studentsÔÇÖ score. The scatterplot diagram portrays that the data were spread-out. The data shows 74% of students have good perception while 26% have moderate perception. 28% students score higher than 75 and 66 % students score between 50-75, and 6% score between 25-50. In conclusion, it is generally believed that the student's perception is high, the student's score will be low and vice versa. It is also explained that the final exam score is obtained objectively, the score data obtained is the studentsÔÇÖ ability in the English language without any interference from the teacher. It is suggested that English teacher can use the studentsÔÇÖ perception as a reflection to improve their competence. The future researcher can do a more elaborate research by analyze the influence of the studentsÔÇÖ perception to their final exam score. In addition, it is also recommended to make a more detailed measurement tool for each variable of studentsÔÇÖ perceptions toward their teacher competences and more evenly distributed and broader sampling.
