Abstract: Twenty first Century skills comprise the skills and abilities that are required by every individual to attain success in life. These skills are also commonly known as Soft Skills and are not only a pre requisite for any employment opportunity but are also highly valued in any classroom or profession. Unfortunately, despite the huge importance laid on the development of these skills, there exists a gap between the skills required for the success in life and the skills harnessed in the classrooms. A study was undertaken to find out the attitude of the senior secondary school students and the application of the soft skills in their real life. The findings revealed that the attitude of the learners towards the acquisition of these skills is vagrant and so is their application of these skills in real life. The present study aims to find out if attitude of the senior secondary school students towards the soft skills is correlated to the application of these skills in the real life.
