The COVID-19 pandemic has featured many impacts to higher education. Academic performance in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic has received minimal research compared to other topics like mental health and productivity. Previously, research found there was no difference in academic performance before and during the COVID-19 pandemic and that anxiety isn’t a negative component that explains students’ stress with academics amidst the academic shift of the pandemic (El Said, 2021; Jun et al., 2021). Therefore, the current study seeks to explore whether protective factors like grit and resilience can improve both perceived and actual academic performance in students and whether these factors moderate COVID-19 related concerns.
