Abstract: The rise of social responsibility in students has been exposed to be linked with academic achievement, success and higher self-esteem. Academic achievement stands for performance of a person to accomplished specific objectives in the instructional atmosphere of school, college and university. This study is an attempt to identify the domain that contributes to the development of social responsibility and competence in students which ultimately facilitates academic achievement. For this purpose the data gathered through a standardized questionnaire from the students of postgraduate and undergraduate courses like MBA, BBA and engineering etc. The collected responses then analyzed through Exploratory Factor analysis, confirmatory factor analysis and other statistical tools. The results suggested that student’s social responsibility contributes a lot in academic performance. However it is an important instrument in acquiring academic objectives. The study further reduced the items in four factors of social responsibility and four factors of academic achievement.
