Abstract

The aim of the research is to determine how internet utilization affected undergraduate students' academic performance in District Bagh, AJ&K, Pakistan. Students all across the world are substantially impacted by the internet. Internet usage and academic success are directly related in a positive way. For this investigation, a descriptive survey design was chosen. The Women University of Azad Jammu and Kashmir, Bagh, undergraduate students from all 13 departments made up the study's population. A sample of 300 undergraduate students from various departments was chosen using a simple random sampling procedure. All female students made up the sample because it was a women's university. An independently created questionnaire was used as a research tool to gather crucial information for the objective of the study. The results of the research data were examined using the statistical Package for Social Science. Based on the findings, recommendations have been given. The study's primary conclusions were that excessive internet use has a negative influence on students' academic performance, but that if students use the internet for academic purposes for 2 to 4 hours per day, it benefits them and has a good effect on their academic progress. It is also beneficial for other classes. It has been established that the fastest route accessing foreign libraries is via the internet. To assist students, the university administration may provide rapid and easy access to internet connections which makes productive and purposeful research.
