AbstractOne of the main ambitions of Psychology practitioners was to identify different predictors for academic performance. In their view, the identification of predictors can have a significant contribution to the diagnosis and intervention procedures in the educational field. The main objective of the present study is the analysis of the relations between personality and academic performances. To be more precise, our goal was to point out the relation between the Big Five personality model and academic performance. The participants were students at the Faculty of Psychology and Educational Sciences, with a Major in Psychology and the assessment methods were Revised NEO Personality Inventory (NEO-PI-R) and Big Five Adjectives on the one hand and, on the other hand, the average of the grades obtained in the Bachelor's degree exams in Psychology and the specialization exam (Clinical Psychology/Psychotherapy, Educational Psychology or Organizational Psychology).
