This paper was designed to study the relationship between the human characteristics and evacuation time among the secondary students. Thedesignedquestionnaire and direct measurement approaches were used to collect the data on seven human characteristics. Pearson Correlation test was used to identify acorrelationbetween the dependent and independent variables while Multiple Linear Regression (MLR) was performed to check the strength of therelationshipand its significance level. Gender and walking speed are significantly correlate with evacuation time with p-value<0.05 and <0.001 respectively. Due to collinearity, variable weight was removedwhich showed more predictive capability based on ANOVA result. Walking speed is significant with p-value<0.001. The R-value of 0.69 showed amoderatecorrelation between observed and predicted value and 48%of thevariancein evacuation time is explainable by variance in walking speed. An increase in 1m/s of walking speed will decrease 55.29 seconds of evacuation time
