Adolescence is a period characterized by emotional upheaval as well as both exposure to more opportunities and risks (Chow, 2005). According to Piaget this is the highest stage of cognitive development. At this stage they transit from concrete operation to formal operation, they start abstracting and solve problems in a systematic way. Hence during this stage more complex analytical skills are given through the curriculum. However in the contemporary society, analytical intelligence alone is not enough to succeed, they also need to be equipped to deal any situations creatively and practically. The integrated use of these three intelligences in every-day situations makes a person self efficient and needed to be successful in life (Sternberg, 1999) . In this context the present study makes an effort to review the articles which talks about the importance successful intelligence in academics and in adolescence years. The reviews clearly indicate that the components of successful intelligence influence positively in adolescents academic achievement and learning. The results of these studies reveal that successful intelligence can be used to teach different subjects in schools. Teaching for successful intelligence is beneficial to all students with different learning patterns and it enhances efficacy and level of performance among students.
