Procrastination is the action of delaying or postponing something such as making a decision or starting or completing some tasks or activities. According to previous studies, students who have a strong tendency to procrastinate get low scores in their tests, resulting in poorer academic performance compared to those who do not procrastinate.This study aims to identify the procrastination factors in completing assignments among three groups of undergraduate students.The relative importance of procrastination factors was quantified by the relative importance index (RII) method prior to ranking. A multistage sampling technique was used in selecting the sample.The findings revealed that ‘too many works in one time’ is one of the top three factors contributing to procrastination in all groups.
