Abstract Many factors, particularly trait-like psychological dimensions, have been demonstrated to greatly contribute to procrastination, but the intricate interactions between these variables have gotten less attention. The purpose of the study was to assist young adults to navigate their academic voyage because these young adults often come across few stumbling blocks such as academic procrastination, locus of control and perfectionism in their academic work. The study group for this research consisted of 150 young adults (111 female, 37, male, 1 transwoman, 1 prefer not to say) and mostly belonged from undergraduate level from various private and public universities of Kolkata. Snowball sampling method was incorporated to identify the sample for the study. In this study, the “Rotter’s Locus of control scale”, “Academic Procrastination Scale by McCloskey” and “Frost Multidimensional Perfectionism Scale” were used to collect data. The Pearson Correlation, descriptive statistics and other statistical analysis were used for data analysis. According to the findings obtained, a significant relationship was established between academic procrastination and perfectionism that might altogether affect the academic outcome and further there were also a significant negative correlation between the locus of control and academic outcome. Research can further be done by using other variables to understand the effectiveness of academic outcome. In addition, educators, policymakers, and mental health professionals can work together to guide young adults based on their beliefs and can help individuals in making informed decisions.
