The present study was conducted to ascertain whether there exists difference in the problem solving ability of the students studying at the secondary stage on the basis of the gender. The results of the study showed that the mean score on the problem solving ability test of the boys was 10.14 whereas the mean score on the problem solving ability test of girls was found to be 10.40. The difference in the mean scores of the problem solving ability was determined by applying t- test and was found to be 0.26.
