An adapted Bengali version of Allport-Vernon-Lindzey study of values was used to measure theoretical, economic, aesthetic, social, political and religious values of these students. The obtained data were subjected to t test. The analysis of results indicated that the value t for theoretical (4.288), aesthetic (2.610) and religious (2.85) values were significant at .05 level but the values of t for economic (1.40), social (0.217) and political (0.49) were not significant. The findings indicated that Madrasha students posses more theoretical & religious values than college students. While, college students are more aesthetic than Madrasha students. Significant difference does not exist between Madrasha students & College students in political, economic & social values.
