Abstract

Students’ academic success is significantly impacted by emotional intelligence, which includes the critical components of interpersonal and intrapersonal connections and adaptability. However, it observed that social isolation obstructs the acquisition of critical life skills, including interpersonal and adaptive behaviour. These are unpleasant experiences that result from emotions of isolation, disconnection, and not belonging. Therefore, the present study was performed to survey the aim of emotional intelligence, social isolation and its relation to the academic performance of students of the University of Education Lahore, Faisalabad campus. A sample of 360 students, including 245 females and 115 male were selected using stratified simple random sampling techniques in true sciences and social sciences. Correlation survey research was performed. The study’s findings showed that while the respondents’ levels of social isolation were low, their emotional intelligence level was high. It appears crucial to incorporate emotional intelligence while assisting students in improving their mental health and doing their tasks more successfully.
