Abstract The study investigates academic procrastination, analyzing 50 participants using the Procrastination Assessment Scale (PASS). It identifies significant correlations (p < 0.05) between procrastination domains, causes, and self-efficacy, highlighting gender-related nuances. Procrastination affects multiple academic aspects concurrently, with intertwined causes like task aversion and distractions. Strong self-efficacy mitigates procrastination's impact, empowering students in their academic pursuits.
The research emphasizes holistic approaches targeting procrastination's core triggers and underscores the importance of bolstering self-efficacy to foster self-regulated learning. Gender-specific differences in procrastination patterns suggest tailored interventions in educational settings.
Beyond academia, findings have implications for workplace productivity. The study prompts further exploration of procrastination's long-term effects on careers. It urges proactive measures to combat procrastination's pervasive influence, enabling individuals to seize educational opportunities and confront challenges resiliently.
