Over the last decades very few studies have conducted on unisex and coeducation in Bangladesh in terms of female role perception, emotional intelligence and interpersonal problem. But these psychological traits of any students need to explore massively for scientific understanding of variation of students in their own environment. In order to achieve this end, the study was carried out on a composite number of 120 participants (boys = 60, girls = 60) of Grade nine (9) and ten (10). The samples were selected by using random and purposive sampling. In order to assess the variable of the study, Female Role Perception (FRP) scale, Adapted Bangla version of Emotional Intelligence Scale and Adapted Bangla version of the Inventory of Interpersonal Problem were used. The findings revealed that there is a significant differences in the interpersonal problem between unisex and co-educational institution (t = 0.930, d = 118, < .05). However there is no significant differences in the perception of female role (t = - .773, d = 118, < .05) and emotional intelligence (t = 0.951, d = 118, < .05) between unisex and co-educational institution. A separate partial correlation-coefficient (r) was performed to ascertain that there is no significance correlation among the above mentioned three psychological inventories between unisex and co-education students. It was concluded that the students in the unisex schools are less stereotypes, although only slightly, they perceive the female role more non-traditional way.
