Learning is a process of living that enables us to move forward in life. Learning is much deeper than just recalling and memorizing. Learning done on a daily basis involves understanding, relating opinions and making connective links between the information learnt previously with the new information learnt recently. There are various forms in which learning can be practiced. The aim of this research is to study about the memory and learning ability of Early and Late adolescents with regards to the objectives set to be; to differentiate the learning ability of Early and Late adolescents as well as to adhere to the early psychological research that was done on the memory power of different stages of Adolescents.  The hypothesis of this study is that there will be a significant difference in learning between Early adolescents and the Late adolescents. 60 samples were taken, 30 in each group. The methodology used in this study are ‘serial leaning and serial positioning’ which were used to demonstrate how individuals of different ages can recall information associated with time delay of 10 minutes between serial learning (orderly manner) and serial positioning (disorderly manner).  The groups were Early Adolescents and Late adolescents from an educational institute located around the college campus. Adolescents with physical disabilities were not included in the study and all the adolescents in this study are from an English medium institution. For the results, Standard deviation and t-test were used to score. The study was proven that Late adolescents have higher memory recall ability compared to that of the early adolescents.
