The study was undertaken to assess the various factors affecting the perception of importance of personal qualities and importance of skills. The study was conducted among 50 students of under graduate and post graduate students of Madras Veterinary College, Tamil Nadu Veterinary and Animal Sciences University. To understand the relationships between level of perception of personal qualities and skills and demographic socio-economic background of respondents, multiple linear regression analysis was fitted. The results indicated that, 72.60 per cent of variations in the perception of importance of personal qualities and 63.60 per cent of variations in the perception of importance of skill qualities were explained by the chosen independent variables. Further, graduates who had their schooling under state board education system perceive the importance of both personal quality attributes and skill attributes positively whereas graduates who had their schooling in CBSE system of education perceive only the importance of skill attributes and not the personal quality attributes
