Abstract
The Adversity Quotient (AQ) was originally intended to empower employees within the organization. Technology-oriented workers such as high-tech polytechnic students and resilient to any challenge become national focus in the future. The challenges of polytechnic students are increasing, especially in the face of transforming technical education and strengthening their intelligence. In line with the concept of intelligence that is closely linked to cognitive ability, one of the potentials for predicting global achievement and success is Adversity Quotient (AQ). Adversity Quotient has four constructs based on the CORE model, namely Control, Ownership, Reach and Endurance. In the context of technical education, the mastery of AQ by polytechnic students is expected to improve their academic performance. Several previous studies have shown that there is a discrepant relationship between the Adversity Quotient and the academic performance of students in general. Thus, this conceptual paper discusses the extent to which the Adversity Quotient has the potential to boost student academic performance and help students overcome challenges during their studies. The contribution of this study is crucial to the application of AQ in student self-development activities to ensure that students are knowledgeable and resilient. This study is expected to strengthen the integration of intelligence in the National Philosophy of Education (FPK) which is the backbone of Malaysia's education flow. Further studies in the development of AQ measurement instruments need to be conducted to identify polytechnic students with low AQ problems for better and more effective guidance.

Key words: Adversity Quotient; AQ; academic achievement; polytechnics; challenges.
