In this research an attempt has been made to investigate the effect of emotional intelligence on academic performance of student. Today it is generally believed that obtaining good academic results are not only primarily determined by higher “Emotional Intelligence” of students. Emotional intelligence incorporates the important aspects of interpersonal and intrapersonal relationships, adaptability, moods and stress management skills, which have a profound effect on the academic performance of students.

In order to measure emotional intelligence, the instrument EQ-i- questionnaire was selected. A sample consisted of two hundred and forty six(246) adolescent students, 123 males and 123 females, participated in this research. Initially they filled the demographic data form and then they rated themselves on EQ-i-test. Finally, their academic performance was appraised on the basis of their final exam, results for the last three years.

The scores of EQ-i- questionnaire of the students were statistically evaluated by “95% confidence interval” in order to determine high and low groups of emotional intelligence. The “T-test” was applied to the academic results of the students (to obtain comparison between high) and low groups of the above mentioned domains of emotional intelligence) and further to see the gender difference in academic performance.

The hypotheses have, without a doubt significantly proved that the students who score high on emotional intelligence specifically in the areas of interpersonal skills, intrapersonal skills, adaptability, general moods, and stress management skills tend to have good academic performance as compared to those who score low on these scales. However, comparison of both genders on academic performance revealed no significant differences.
