Self-regulatory behavior and strategic learning is considered to be one of the key components of academic success. In many cases, self-regulation is essential in professional interventions designed to foster academic achievement. Taking it into account, we have studied the presence of self-regulation and learning strategies in 30 high performing undergraduate Romanian students, recruited from Babeș- Bolyai University, the Technical University and the Iuliu Hațeganu University of Medicine and Pharmacy of Cluj-Napoca. The selection criteria were: promotion of all exams, weighted GPA above 9.00, or if below, than eligible for scholarship, preferably they ought to be among the top 3 students of their group in terms of GPA and we also needed recommendation from a lecturer. The study strategies and the self-regulation skills were assessed with LASSI (Learning and Study Strategies Inventory- 2nd Edition).
Our findings highlight the study skills and the lack of anxiety as being significant associates of high academic achievement.
