Psychological wellbeing signifies the presence of qualities like autonomy, self-acceptance, positive relations with others, and purpose in life, environmental mastery, and personal growth. The study looks at gender differences in predicting the impact of psychological wellbeing on academic performance. The sample consists of 666 students who have completed their graduation, out of which 453 are male students and 213 are females. The results indicated high level of psychological wellbeing among respondents. Purposefulness significantly influenced academic performance of male as well as female students. Personal growth predicted academic success in males. Autonomy and environmental mastery created significant positive difference in academic performance of female students only. Self-acceptance and positive relations with others did not have any significant impact on the academic performance of male as well as female students.


Wellbeing refers to a sense of accomplishment and fulfilment (Huseyin and John, 2015). People who achieve good standards of wellbeing are likely to be more creative and more productive than individuals with low well-being. A focus on wellbeing considers how people feel and function, and how they evaluate their lives. This can be separated into two key aspects: hedonic and eudaimonic (Ryan and Deci, 2001). The hedonic aspect of wellbeing refers to people's feelings or emotions such as happiness or anxiety. The eudaimonic aspect of wellbeing refers to leading 'a life well lived', interacting with the world around you to meet basic psychological needs such as experiencing a sense of competence or sense of meaning and purpose. There is also an evaluative aspect of wellbeing that refers to the way that people evaluate their lives with regard to their own appraisals of how life is going, or particular aspects of their lives such as job satisfaction; this aspect of wellbeing is often captured using satisfaction measures.
