This study was based on the perceptions of lecturers and black CTA students at Unisa, a South African distance education university regarding on factors that contribute to black students' academic success and failure.
The main purposes of the study were to help black CTA students to understand the reasons for success and failure better, and to improve lecturers' teaching approach(es). The research shows that students and lecturers have divergent views on what factors contribute to academic success or failure and the relative importance of the various factors.
