The ANOVA shows that the main effect of age (Junior: X=127.81/Senior: X=140.60) reached on acceptable level of statistical significance [F (1,156) = 44.07, p<0.01, and the main effect of Educational Stream (Science: X= 139.96/Arts: X=128.45) was also found significant difference [F(1, 156) = 78.73, p>0.01]. The results revealed that senior subjects were found superior than on Emotional Intelligence junior subjects. It is also noteworthy that impact of science subjects was found positive on EI tests scores and studying science improves Emotional Intelligence.
