Abstract:

A sample of 150 students was selected through purposive sampling technique from three Colleges of Punjab Agricultural University, Ludhiana having Government funded programmes namely B.Sc. (Hons.) Home Science, B.Sc. (Hons.) Agriculture, B.Tech. (Agricultural Engineering & Technology). Data were collected with the help of questionnaire. The findings revealed that 53 percentage of students had medium and 19 per cent had high level of academic performance. The factors like percentage of marks, extra coaching at 10+2 level and study habits were positively correlated with the academic performance of the students whereas the factors like participation in sports, level of participation in cultural activities and appearing in supplementary and compartment examinations were negatively correlated with the academic performance of the students. Significant association was observed between academic performance of the students who were getting scholarship and involved in student’s union activities.
