This study reports the relationships between self-regulation (SR), math self-efficacy, math interest, and three types of pupils’ mathematics achievement. The sample included 14–16-year-old students in the 9th grade (out of 11) educated in seven standard and enhanced curricula schools in Russia (N = 318). Significant correlations were found between the studied constructs and various types of pupils’ mathematics achievement. SR proved to be a significant predictor for higher indicators in both year math grade and for solving specific mathematical tasks. Whereas the constructs math self-efficacy and math interest are relevant to different kinds of mathematics achievements, math self-efficacy is a significant predictor for successful solving specific mathematical tasks, math interest is for the year math grade. In addition, the general level of SR acts as a mediator of the links between math interest and year math grade.
