As a nation, the India is failing to compete globally in academic achievement. The problem addressed in the current study is twofold, with both components dealing with student underachievement. The first concern is that students are failing to reach individual potential, and second that the country is failing in global academic competition. The search for valid solutions to remediate underachievement has yielded non-traditional methods of internal motivation and resiliency with emotional and even spiritual implications. Consequently research needs to be conducted to verify if in fact a student's spiritual intelligence acts as an internal motivator that encourages or predicts his or her achievement. Therefore, the current study investigated was the effect of a secondary student's spiritual intelligence on his or her achievement in Science subjects. The study aimed to study of spiritual intelligence in relation achievement in science among secondary school students. The study was conducted on a sample of 300 secondary school students. Sampling was done through proportionate stratified technique giving dual representation to the various strata like sex, location, type of institute, medium of institute, religion, community etc. The findings reveal that the causes of spiritual intelligence among the secondary school students differ on the basis of Gender at different board; this may be due to the fact that the male and female students perceive spiritual intelligence merely as a subject and does not provide equal attention as to other subject.
