In the current competitive environment where students are expected to perform multi roles with efficiency and effectiveness, it is highly needed to develop their right attitude and emotional intelligence towards the unseen complexities of life and quality education. As emotional intelligence is a subset of social intelligence with the ability to understand and monitor one’s own feelings and others too which allows a student to mine the required data for his academic achievement which is an outcome of education and the extent at which the educational goal has been achieved. The emphasis of this paper was to determine the factors which are affecting the development of emotional intelligence and its role in academic achievement for students. In this research secondary data has been collected out of which we find out the correlation between emotional intelligence and academic achievement and teaching emotional and social skills at school not only positively influence academic achievement during the year when these were taught but also leaves the impact in long term achievement. Findings of this paper present that academic achievement without emotional intelligence does not indicate future success and absence of emotional intelligence also indicate the week personality and ability to build relations at working place as well in schools and it is highly important for quality education.
