The problems that arise during the learning process are often not due to the students' cognitive inability, but rather the result of a lack of academic grit. Academic grit is important to make individuals work hard, have high standards, focus on fulfilling responsibilities, and continue to show effort despite failure, difficulties, and obstacles that always come in the way. This study aims to determine the effectiveness of discussion technique group guidance to improve students' academic grit. This study uses an experimental method with a pretest-posttest one-group design with as many as 9 students as the subject of the Islamic Education Guidance and Counseling Study Program, Raden Intan State Islamic University, Lampung, Indonesia. The data collection technique used an academic grit scale. Data analysis of the results of hypothesis testing based on the Wilcoxon test using SPSS V25 obtained the value asymp. sig (2 tailed) 0,007 < 0,05 and from the results of the pretest-posttest from the mean of 62 to 70, it can be concluded that the discussion technique group guidance is effective in increasing students' academic grit. From the results obtained the researchers suggest to 1) Student academic supervisor, when providing consulting services to students, the guidance service would be better to do it in groups because groups research shows that it can increase students' academic grit, 2) Students of the Islamic Education Guidance and Counseling Study Program at the State Islamic University of Raden Intan Lampung Indonesia Batch of 2021 should participate in group guidance service activities with full commitment from the beginning to the end of the activity because with group guidance it can increase students' academic grit. 3) Then suggestions for future researchers, to increase academic grit, can be tried with group guidance using other techniques.
