Each individual has a particular preferred sensory modality while gathering information. Four different sensory modalities used are visual (by way of charts, diagrams), aural (listening to spoken words), read write (reading textual matter, taking down notes), kinesthetic (learning practically by physical manipulation or experimentally).The present study was undertaken with a purpose to know the preferred sensory modality when males and females were compared. 95 females and 80 males volunteered for the study making a total of 175 students. VARK questionnaire was provided to these students which were answered by them in a given time. The information obtained was compiled and compared. Multimodal method of learning was preferred in the entire group when compared. This means that various sensory modalities have to be put together for a student to learn faster. Moreover males and females when compared had similar patterns of studying. Both preferred auditory method when compared to other learning methods.

Key words: Visual, Aural, Kinesthetic, Questionnaire
