Pavithra Raj | Dr. V Chandramohan
Abstract: Emotional Intelligence (EI) is considered as a successful predictor of Academic Achievement. Researchers have claimed that EI predicts success in schools/colleges/universities. The present study is an attempt in this direction. Three hundred Post-graduate girl Psychology students, studying at Indian Institute of Psychology and Research, Bangalore University, Bangalore, constitute as a sample for the present study. The students are administered with Emotional Intelligence Scale to measure their Emotional Quotient (EQ). EQ score is compared with all the four semester examination marks of the college students. Results clearly indicate that there is a significant difference (P >0.01) existing between the EQ and Academic Achievement of college students in all the semester examinations. EQ predicts Academic Achievement. Students, who are high on EQ, are academically excellent. EI plays a major role in promoting Academic Achievement among college students. Development of EI among college students leads to academic success.
