  • Mr. Nikhil Pandey Research Scholar, Department of Sociology, Mahatma Gandhi Central University, Motihari, Bihar, India


Many sociologists have worked on deriving the relationship between social factors, like socioeconomic status, gender, family, and friend circle- and the academic achievements of students. In the same manner, this study also attempts to establish a linkage of five social factors, namely, socioeconomic status, gender, family environment and family values, peer groups, and career aspirations and choices induced by society with academic achievement. Existing literature has been reviewed from different journals related to the mentioned theme. After this, it has been concluded that social factors play a pivotal role in shaping academic performance.
