Positive self-concept plays significant role in successful living. Positive self concept helps an individual to understand their own life and the way they behave. In order to build a positive self concept, one needs to start the process from an early age so that one can put a solid foundation for one’s bright future. The aim of this research was to find out the differences in their self concept of Higher Secondary students with reference to their gender. The present study covers 120 boys and girls studying in Higher Secondary school. The self concept questionnaire (SCQ) of Dr. R.K. Sarasawat is used as a tool. The self-concept questionnaire was administered to the students individually for measuring their self-concept. The present study measures the self concept only with regard to gender with six separate dimensions. After the analysis of the data, independent ‘t’ test was applied to check significance. The finding reveals significant difference in the physical dimension of self concept and overall scores with regard to gender.
