    Research output: Published contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


    The study aimed to build upon previous research by assessing various predictors of academic performance, including intellectual curiosity and motivation. Data was therefore collected from two cohorts of Level 6 undergraduate students. Multiple regression analysis showed that both intellectual curiosity and intrinsic motivation at the beginning of the academic year predicted academic performance. Curiosity also predicted students’ estimates of their academic performance. It was concluded that intellectual curiosity is an important variable that should be considered as a key predictor of academic performance.
