The Social Intelligence Test and the Emotional Intelligence Scale developed by the investigators for the purpose of the study were administered to gather data from a stratified random sample of 628 high school students in the age range 13 to 16. The analysis of the data with SPSS revealed that presence of significant difference among high-, average-, and low achievers in secondary school students with regard to their social intelligence and emotional intelligence. The study exposed the presence of low, but significant positive correlation between social intelligence and emotional intelligence of secondary school students. The high-, average-, and low achievers, however, do not differ significantly with regard to the degree of relationship between their social intelligence and emotional intelligence.
