In the spring of 1995 a research was conducted in Shahed University to reveal why some of the students achieved greater progress than the others? Two groups of students were selected: the first group consisting of the students whose average scores in two semesters was 15 out of 20. The second group consisted of the students whose average grades during the same period were below the accepted level. Based on the theoretical framework several variable were high lighted and some 20 hypotheses were tested. Findings suggested that educational progress did not correlate with such variables as age, living system, employment, social status, housing situation, type of high school diploma, date of diploma, number of participation in contests and the year of acceptance to the university. On the other hand, variables such as gender, family problems, level of interest in liesure activities, course of study, calss attendance and social awareness proved to have an impact on students' educational progress.
