Dr. A. George William


Abstract: COVID-19 is the worst pandemic of this century. It unleashed worldwide havoc on the lives of people, finance, corporate sectors, education, career, livelihood, lifestyle and mental health. The purpose of the current study is to assess the impact of emotional competence on psychological wellbeing and academic performance with resilience as a moderating factor among college students in Bengaluru, India during COVID-19 3rd wave. It is hypothesized that there is no significant correlation among Emotional Competence, Psychological Wellbeing and Academic Performance, and no covariance variation between Academic Performance and Psychological Well-being. It is also hypothesized that resilience does not play a moderating role. The sampling consisted of 118 urban UG and PG college students from Bangalore city. Through online survey, data were collected. Emotional Competence scale, Academic Performance scale, Ryff?s Psychological Well-being scale and the Connor-Davidson Resilience Scale (CD-RISC-25) were used to collect data. Pearson correlation analysis, MANOVA and linear regression analysis were carried out for analysis of data. The results indicated that there were significant Pearson correlation between Emotional Competence and Academic Performance, and Emotional Competence and Psychological well-being. It also indicated that there was a covariance variation between Academic Performance and Psychological Well-being. The Linear regression analysis indicated that Resilience had a strengthening moderating effect on the relationship between Emotional Competence and Academic Performance, and a weakening effect on the relationship between Emotional Competence and Psychological Well-being. The study does not attempt to study the rural population and the impact of COVID-19 on other aspects of the students.
