AbstractThe objective of the paper is to study the difference in the levels of academic procrastination among students living with family and students living away from family. It was hypothesized that there is a significant difference in the levels of academic procrastination and gender among students living with family members and students living away from family members; The Academic Procrastination Scale (McCloskey, 2011) was used and a sample of two hundred and forty-nine undergraduate students (n=249) of the age group 18-24 was taken with 152 students living with family (M=66, F=86) and 97 students living away from family (M=37, F=60). Data was gathered through the use of online form submissions and was analysed with the help of SPSS software. According to the findings of the study, living status does not have a significant effect on academic procrastination but gender is seen to have a significant impact on the same. Furthermore, there is no interaction effect observed between living status and gender. The present study has implications for teachers, parents and university administration in terms of structuring various motivation strategies and teaching pedagogy.
