Jincy Cherian, Dr Preet Kumari and SP Sinha
Academic resilience can be defined as an energy and drive to learn, the ability to work effectively, and achieve academically in spite of stressors and risk factors. The present research aimed to study the relationship of academic resilience with self-concept, spirituality, emotional maturity among undergraduate students. A sample of 300 undergraduate students (150 males, 150 females) was selected. Academic Resilience Scale (ARS-30, Simon Cassidy), Self-Concept Rating Scale (Deo, 1998) , Spiritual Belief Scale (Deshmukh and Deshmukh, 2012)  and Emotional Maturity Scale (Singh and Bhargava, 1990)  were administered. Multiple Regression Analysis was done to find out the contribution of different predictor variables. The results indicated a significant positive relationship between the predictor variables and the criterion variable. Positive correlation was found between self-concept, emotional maturity and spirituality. The contribution of emotional maturity was much more remarkable as compared to the other two predictor variables i.e. self-concept and spirituality in determining academic resilience among undergraduates.
