A Study of Problem-Solving Ability among Meritorious School Students of Varanasi District
The present paper focused on problem-solving ability among meritorious school students. Problems are the real facts of life. Youth today faces different challenges in life in the changed world. Problem-Solving Ability may be said to be a deliberate and purposeful act on the part of an individual. The main aim of this study is to analyze the problem-solving ability among meritorious school students and find out whether gender, school-board and locality of school influenced the problem-solving ability of meritorious school students or not. The sample for the present study comprised of 120 meritorious school students (obtained 75% or above 75% in U.P. Board or 9 or more than 9 CGPA in CBSE in class X) and are presently studying in class 11th of CBSE and U.P. Board schools from both urban and rural area of Varanasi district. The findings of the study revealed that there is very low problem-solving ability among meritorious school students. Meritorious boys showed higher problem-solving ability than girls. Meritorious students from urban areas have more problem-solving ability than rural area and meritorious students of CBSE and U.P. Board do not differ significantly in their problem-solving ability.
