This paper aims to explore the set of characteristics that construct the profile of resilient students based on the OECD's PISA data. The sample of the research consists of low economic, social and cultural status students from Finland, Portugal and Croatia. The selection of the above three countries was grounded in factors related to each country's education system and also to their respective PISA results. The SPSS platform was used for the data analysis and the following descriptive statistical process. The present study suggests that resilient students form and develop certain attributes that provide them with the strength and fortitude to achieve school success. (EN)
