Adjustment to University and Academic Performance: Brief Report of a Follow-Up Study
Petersen, Il-haam; Louw, Johann; Dumont, Kitty; Malope, Nomxolisi
Educational Psychology, v30 n4 p369-375 Jul 2010
This study presents data that extend an earlier analysis of predictors of academic performance from one to three years. None of the adjustment and other psychosocial variables (help-seeking, academic motivation, self-esteem, perceived stress and perceived academic overload) could predict success at university at the end of three years of study. The only significant predictor was academic performance at the end of the first year of study. (Contains 1 figure and 2 tables.)
