Abstract


The present deliberation is aimed to see the influence of self concept and psychological wellbeing on academic performance. For this purpose a sample group of 10th standard of school boys and girls (N=300) were chosen and the tests were administered on these students. A self concept measure developed by Ahluwalia (1986) was used for taping information regarding students' perception pertaining to their self concept. For measuring psychological wellbeing, a scale developed by Bhogle and Prakash (1995) was used. And for academic performance the results of the students for the last three consecutive years were taken and the averages of these were obtained for determining students' performance level. Adopting 2X2 factorial design, Two way ANOVA was run by using SPSS package. The obtained results have clearly indicated that pattern of influence of self concept and psychological wellbeing independently as well as in conjunction thereof. Having run this statistics, it was found that both the independent variables have their significant influence on academic performance but interactional effect of both independent variables was not found statistically significant.
