This study aimed to examine the influence of Adversity Quotient (AQ) on the academic achievement among Malaysian polytechnic students. A total of 1,845 students from five polytechnics in Malaysia participated in this study and these polytechnic was selected from five different zones, namely Nouthern, Southern, Eastern, Western and Borneo. The samples for the study was selected using the proportionate clustered multistage stratified sampling technique. Data collected for this study was analyzed using regression analysis and the results showed that the findings of the analysis showed that AQ contributed only 0.9% (r = .098) changes in the variance of academic achievement score. AQ still has the potential to be studied from the other perspective of the success factor in the polytechnic students as a whole.
