Academic Resilience plays a very important role in modern education. It is the student's ability to compete and get success in an environment where they face adverse conditions. Academic resilience assists the learners to handle and manage stress, anxiety and pressure in the academic setting. These days, academic resilience is seen as an emerging trend in education system and has become an important part of education as well as the most important part of a student's life. In the present study, an attempt was made to assess and compare the levels of academic resilience among 480 students (240 high & 240 low achievers from various streams, i.e., medical, non-medical, commerce & humanities) studying in Senior Secondary classes of six different private schools of Ludhiana city. Academic Resilience Scale developed by Mallick and Kaur (2015) was used to assess the academic resilience among selected high and low achievers. Results of the study showed that medical students (high achievers from class 12th ) were highly academically resilient followed by non-medical, commerce and humanities students. High achievers were found to have high level of sense of well-being as well as positive relationships with adults and peers than low achievers.

Abstract


Academic Resilience plays a very important role in modern education. It is the student's ability to compete and get success in an environment where they face adverse conditions. Academic resilience assists the learners to handle and manage stress, anxiety and pressure in the academic setting. These days, academic resilience is seen as an emerging trend in education system and has become an important part of education as well as the most important part of a student's life. In the present study, an attempt was made to assess and compare the levels of academic resilience among 480 students (240 high & 240 low achievers from various streams, i.e., medical, non-medical, commerce & humanities) studying in Senior Secondary classes of six different private schools of Ludhiana city. Academic Resilience Scale developed by Mallick and Kaur (2015) was used to assess the academic resilience among selected high and low achievers. Results of the study showed that medical students (high achievers from class 12th ) were highly academically resilient followed by non-medical, commerce and humanities students. High achievers were found to have high level of sense of well-being as well as positive relationships with adults and peers than low achievers.
