Abstract

Perceived social support contributes to the students´ development and academic performance. Likewise, previous research suggests a positive relationship and influence of emotional intelligence on academic performance. Thus, the purpose of this study is twofold: a) to examine the relationship between perceived social support, emotional intelligence, and academic performance; and b) to analyze the predictive capacity of perceived social support on emotional intelligence and both variables on academic performance. A total of 419 students from the University of the Basque Country participate in this study, with ages between 18 and 40 years (M=20.45; SD=3.31), 27% boys and 73% girls. The following scales are used: Perceived Social Support Scale (AFA), Teacher and Classmate Support Scale (TCMS), Trait Meta Mood Scale (TMMS-24), and Brief School Adjustment Scale (EBAE-10). Correlational and multiple regression analyzes are applied. The results show the highest associations between teacher support and academic performance, family support with emotional repair, and academic performance with emotional repair. Worth noting is the explanatory capacity of the teacher support on academic performance, family support on emotional clarity and emotional repair, and emotional repair on academic performance.
