Statistical inference of the Pearson-r and multiple regression is used to analyze the data. The results showed that the significant relationship between self awareness (r = 0.21), emotional management (r = 0.21) and empathy (r = 0.21) at the level of p <0.05 with academic performance. Findings from multiple regression analysis (stepwise) showed that only three dimensions of emotional intelligence which is selfawareness (ß = 0261), self motivation (ß =- 0182) and empathy (ß = 0167) accounted for 8.7% of variation in criterion (academic performance).
