Abstract:A student’s academic success is defined by the results of their studies that show how much they have learned. Earning a bachelor’s degree is one example of a significant academic accomplishment. Assessments in the classroom often take the form of exams or ongoing evaluations. How far a school or individual has come in their pursuit of educational objectives, both immediate and distant, is known as academic accomplishment. Graduation rates are one indicator of institutional success, whereas students’ GPAs are one indicator of student success. The present study aims to compare the academic achievement of SC and ST girls in higher education namely university level. For this purpose the researcher has followed the cross sectional method. A sample of 80 girls (40 SC and 40 ST) were the participants of the study. The study has found out that the SC girls have better academic achievement than the ST girls. Since not all castes and members of scheduled castes are accepted into mainstream universities, it may be concluded that there is still room for development in the socioeconomic situations of this group.
