This study develops a model to identify factors that can explain the variations of matriculation students performance in Management Accounting at Pusat Matrikulasi, Universiti Utara Malaysia. Using multiple regression analysis, there are four combined variables which could explain 53% of the variation in students performance. These variables are Grade Point Average (GPA), Financial Accounting grade, intention to major in accounting, and cooperative learning. In terms of relationship, the study shows there are positive and significant relationships between Financial accounting grade, mathematical ability, effort, and GPA and performance in Management Accounting. The study also reveals there are significant differences in Management Accounting grade among students who study Prinsip Akaun in SPM and those who do not; among students who have an intention to get an accounting degree and those who do not; students who take Additional Mathematics and those who do not; and students exposed to cooperative learning and who are not. Students who come from different areas and from different school streams also show significant differences in their performance. Based on the findings, the researcher proposes that the application requirements to Pusat Matrikulasi UUM are to be more strict and selective. Accounting educators should start looking into the good of cooperative learning that could be adopted to their current teaching methods. The study model also could be used as a tool to identify students who are behind at the early stage.
