The sample consisted of 200 primary IV, V and VI pupils (Mean age = 9 years). The results of the multiple regression revealed that parental influence, school environment, learners\' interest and self-efficacy individually and jointly predicted academic performance. The study found that the predictors jointly determine the academic performance of the pupils. Parents\' influence, self–efficacy, and school environment were also found to be statistically significant. Results are discussed in terms of counseling implications.
