Superstitions are beliefs or feelings which are irrational and cannot be explained by reasons or facts. Even in this age of science, space and technology people still are in the grip of superstitions. The main objective of the study was to know the level of superstitions among the girls of age- group 14 to 16 years and to know the difference in the level of superstitions among girls grouped on the basis of type of school, income and education of their parents. Superstition Scale by Dixit and Dubey was used to collect data for the study. The sample consisted of 86 convent and 122 government school girls and hence, 208 girls from both the schools. The study found that most of the girls were not superstitious. There was found a significant difference in the superstition level of girls grouped on the basis of the type of school, income and education of parents.
