Academic performance becomes a crucial success factor within the modern education setting due the higher degree of completion exists within the local and foreign academic sector. Even though male and female students privilege equal amenities in the university system, there is a significant performance lag between male and female students’ academic accomplishments. In most cases, female students continue to outride the male student with a superior level of performance, which demarcates major gender-specific performance disparities. Academic self-perception, attitude towards teachers, attitude towards school, goal valuation and motivation/ self-regulation have been described as the most important factors affecting the level of academic success.
