Abstract

High failure rates at universities result in unacceptable levels of attrition reduced graduate throughput and increased cost of training a nation?s labor force. This study is, therefore, designed to identify and analyze the factors affecting academic performance of undergraduates of Faculty of Management Studies of Rajarata University of Sri Lanka. Since the majority of the students? performance poor although some students? performance is high rose a commanding necessity to distinctly colligate the factors that lead to the lower academic performance of these students. Thus, this study realizes on the objectives of examining the impact of each factor on the academic performance and identifying the most influencing factors on the academic performance. The variables under consideration were the academic performance (student?s GPA) as a dependent variable and competency in English, student commitment, personal characteristics, financial socio-economic and cultural influence, extra- curricular activities, learning environment, course structure, and teacher performance were the independent variables. Data were collected from 100 students through a self-administered questionnaire from all the four departments of Faculty using simple random sampling technique. Regression analysis, correlation analysis, and descriptive analysis were used to analyze the data. The findings revealed that competency in English, student commitment, personal characteristics, financial socio-economic and cultural influence and extra- curricular activities are significantly impacting and are the most influencing factors towards the academic performance of undergraduates while factors of learning environment, course structure and teacher performance did not reflect a significant impact on academic performance.
