Abstract

The main purpose of this study is to examine the relationship between cognitive intelligence, emotional intelligence, and academic achievement. Furthermore, a model to predict academic achievement will also be developed. A group of 293 undergraduates of Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS) took the MENSA Admission Test (MAT) and an Emotional Intelligence Test on March 2006. The MAT is using Raven's Advanced Progressive Matrices (APM) to measure cognitive intelligence. Meanwhile, the EI test is based on the model of Goleman. The academic achievement of participants is in term of their Cumulative Grade Point Averages (CGPA) in two semester of first year. Result reveals that the only IQ is having a significant positive correlation with CGP A. The models obtained also indicating that IQ might be an important predictor for academic achievement. The importance of EI is still ambiguous in this analysis.
