The aim of this study was to establish the differences in nonacademic, academic and global self-concept considering intelligence, age and gender. Participants were 171 students of 5 ground schools in Črnomerec. Instruments that we used were Marsh SDQI (Marsh, 1988), Self Description Questinnaire 1 to test their self-concept and SPM (Raven, Court, Raven, 1994) Standard Progressive Matrices to test the intelligence. Gender differences were perceived in academic self-concept, as well as diffferences in age and intelligence. Girls have higher academic self-concept than the boys. Younger students' self-concept is higher than older ones'. Students with IQ above average have statistically higher academic self-concept than the ones with an average IQ. There is also an interaction of gender/intelligence variables. Both groups of girls and the boys with IQ above average dont differ between themselves, but the boys with an average IQ have lower academic self-concept. Gender differences were perceived as statistically significant in general self-concept. Girls have statistically higher general self-concept than the boys.
