The research findings revealed that (a) there was no significant difference in self-efficacy on the aspects of gender ((sig. 0.219 > p 0.05) and learning support facilities ((sig. 0.073 > p  0.05); (b) in research methodology on the aspect of gender ((sig. 0.508 > p 0.05); (c) in academic writing ability on the aspects of gender (sig. 0.939 > p 0.05); and (d) in types of supervisors on the aspects of gender (sig.0.618 > p 0.05), sources of educational cost (sig. 0.474 > p 0.05), and learning support facilities (sig. 0.773 > p 0.05). However, (a) there was a significant difference in self-efficacy on the aspects of profession (sig. 0.000 < p 0.05), and sources of educational cost (sig. 0.014 < p 0.05); (b) in research methodology on the aspects of profession (sig. 0.000 < p 0.05), sources of educational cost (sig. 0.004 < p 0.05), and learning support facilities (sig. 0.001 < p 0.05); (c) in academic writing ability on the aspects of profession (sig. 0.013 < p 0.05 ), sources of educational support (sig. 0.014 < p 0.05), and learning support facilities (sig. 0.000 < p 0.05); and (d) in types of supervisors on the aspect of profession (sig. 0.022 < p 0.05). Partially, self-efficacy contributed 59.7%; research methodology (10.4%) and types of supervisor (0.1%) ---- which is totally 70.2% towards the students’ academic writing ability in accelerating students accomplishing final papers.
