The result showed that 1% senior secondary school students had meta cognitive skills very high. 17.66% senior secondary school students belong to high level meta cognitive skills. 39.66% senior secondary school students had average level of meta cognitive skills. 28.66% senior secondary school students belong to low level mega cognitive skills. 13% senior secondary school students belong to very low level meta cognitive skills.
