In-Depth Inquiry on the Reasons of the Students’ Academic Failures and Their Coping Mechanism

Abstract

Using qualitative method of research, this study focused on the reasons of the students’ academic failure (specifically those who failed more than 50% of the enrolled subjects) and their coping mechanism. Ten (10) participants under contract of Agreement (COA) were interviewed personally and virtually. Attitudes (laziness), computer gaming addiction, work, people, and personal issues were the primary reasons of academic failures. All seven participants also had different coping mechanisms: namely, diversion, redirection, and inspiration. Among the reasons, external factors were evident while among the coping mechanisms, those that would bring positive results were apparent. The results show that when it comes to academic failures, students are more vulnerable to external factors and that despite their failure, they still would like to go back on track.
