It was conducted among urban and rural PUC students of Dharwad and Tanakpur in the age group of 16-18 years who were randomly selected from four science coaching institutes of Dharwad (Karnataka) and three science coaching institutes of Tanakpur (Uttarakhand). Samples included 10 to 15 per cent students from each class (PUC-I and PUC-II) of coaching institutes that constituted an overall 592 students. Baron Emotional Quotient-inventory: Youth Version was used to assess emotional intelligence of respondents. The results of the present study revealed that, majority of students from both Dharwad and Tanakpur were in medium level of all emotional intelligence dimensions.
