Life skills play an important role to promote all the traits of people including social, physical, behavioural and mental well being. The perception about life skills has received a lot of attention by the experts from various fields.

The objective of the present study was to investigate the effectiveness of life skills training on academic achievement and achievement in genetics among eleventh standard students. The sample comprised of 64 students from Government school. Modules on Genetics based on Life Skills and Achievement test in genetics were prepared by the investigators. The life skills are taught with different methods chosen by the investigators. Experimental group received pre-test with life skills treatment and control group was not given the treatment and pre-test. Post-test was given to both the groups. The result revealed that the ‘treated group’ has scored better than the control group on Academic achievement and Achievement in Genetics with the influence of pre-test.
