Abstract

For effective engagement of students in their academics and for enhancing their academic performance it is very necessary to develop the emotional intelligence capabilities of students. The purpose of study was to determine whether there is relationship between emotional intelligence and students' college-level academic performance by assessing the influence of both the individual elements of emotional intelligence and emotional intelligence as a whole. The total of 252 students from three different colleges of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa participated in study. The predictors have shown significant association with criterion variable. The students' academic performance and emotional intelligence were both positively and strongly correlated with relationship management. In predicting students' academic performance, a significant positive relationship amid emotional intelligence and academic performance was found. Emotional intelligence was a significant factor for students’ academic performance that shows that achievement in academia depends not only on cognitive dimensions of intelligence but on emotional skills. Consequently, the institutions should focus upon aspect of emotional intelligence of the students which will result in good academic performance of the students.
