The purpose of the study was to determine the difference of Cardiovascular Endurance between Government and Private High Schools boys of Dibrugarh district of Assam. 80 (Eighty) boys from Government High School (40) and Private High School (40), age ranging from 14 to 16 years were selected as the subject. The data pertaining to the study were collected by employing the Modified Harvard Step Test and the t-ratio statistical technique was employed to compare the mean value at 0.05 level of confidence. On the basis of result it was conclude that insignificant difference was observed in the Cardio Vascular Endurance between both the groups. It was also observed that the Government High School going boys have better Cardiovascular Endurance than Private High School going boys.
