ABSTRACT

The adolescent is the real capital of any society and we should protect and preserve it for the betterment of the society and nation. The present study is an attempt towards examine the pattern of relationship between the academic achievement and family environment. The research was carried out of 200 adolescents in the age group of 15 to 18 years. The researchers used academic achievement scores which were the aggregate percentage of marks from the previous two classes, serve as indicators of academic achievement. Moos (1974) Family Environment Scale (FES) was used to study the impact of family on adolescent’s academic success. The academic scores of girls were found better than the boys while boys lead the girls on family environment scores where the t-value was significant at 0.01 levels. There was a clear cut difference between the scores of high and low groups and the t-value was again significant at 0.01 levels. The obtained results indicate that the adolescent experiencing healthy family environments are found to have higher academic achievement in comparison to children belonging to low family environment.
