AbstractThis study was aimed to analyse the causal attributions of higher education students and to find the relationship between the successful and unsuccessful student’s causal attributions to exam scores studying in different semesters of under graduate and post graduate science program. A total number of 406 respondents filled the “The revised causal dimension scale” (CDSII). A confirmatory factor analysis was conducted in order to substantiate the construct validity of the scale. In order to examine the relationship Pearson Chi-Square test was performed. The results indicated that there exists significant relationship between the successful and unsuccessful student’s causal attributions to exam scores. The successful students attributed their success to internal, stable and controllable causes more frequently and unsuccessful students attributed poor efforts and lack of ability as a major cause for their failure.
