Abstract: This study reveals issues regarding academic failures among accounting students. Employing a qualitative approach, this paper draws on data from open-ended questionnaire surveys distributed to those students who failed one of the intermediate accounting courses offered at undergraduate level. A total of 38 undergraduate students form a sample for this study. The findings indicate the key reasons of failures are poor time management, overconfidence, lack of doing tutorial exercises or revisions, lecturer teach too fast, do not focus in class and personal deficiency. A few suggestions to improve academic performance based on students’ perspective are highlighted. The research findings contribute new dimensions in understanding the reasons behind a high failure rate and ways to overcome this issue. These findings are particularly beneficial to lecturers in planning their teaching methods so as to reduce the percentage of academic failure rate among accounting graduates.
