Abstract


Study was designed to investigate factors those are facilitating success among higher education students. It was quantitative in nature, in which scientific methodology was used to measure the research objectives. Students success scale was developed in this study through a standardized procedure which was based on 56 items and five subscales, named as, Students Personal Characteristics , Factors related with Institutional Support, Factors related with Family Support, Students Awareness and Access to Resource. Developed scale was administered on a stratified random sample of 100 Master level students (50 male and 50 female) studying at Quaid-i- Azam university, National University of Modern Language and International Islamic University. With the help of a statistical package of social sciences collected data was analyzed with statistical procedure i.e., SD, correlation and analysis of variance. Results revealed that in the acquisition of students success their personal characteristics, factors related with institutional support, family support, their awareness and access to learning resource are playing a very important role. Male university students are showing more strong academic related characteristics as compared to female university students. Those students whose fathers are teaching professionals are exhibiting higher scores on students success questionnaire and those whose fathers are business men scored lower. Higher education management and teachers can play a significant role in the determination of students success if they devise management practices in collaboration with the factors that are promoting success among learners and by providing conducive learning environment with maximum learning resources.
