The present study was conducted to examine the learning styles and metacognitive skills of rural adolescents. The sample for the study comprised 200 rural school going adolescents (grade 9th & 10th) randomly drawn from the selected Government Senior Secondary Schools of the selected village of Ludhiana-1 Block. The subjects were equally distributed across both the grades (grade 9th =100 & grade 10th =100) as well as genders (males= 100 & females =100). VAK Learning Styles Self Assessment Questionnaire (Chislett & Chapman, 2005) and Metacognitive Awareness Inventory (Schraw & Dennison, 1994) were used to collect data. Results of this research indicated that the major proportion of sample adolescents had an average level of metacognition with a preference for Visual and Kinaesthetic leaming style.
