This study aims to compare the flexibility and coordination situation of Annual with Semester scholars in a physical education program under the umbrella of universities Punjab (province). The subjects were selected from Govt College University, University of the Central Punjab and Punjab University. 100 subjects were selected in each group of Annual and Semester system program for this study. A consent form was filled by the selected subjects and Questionnaires were also developed to get the feedback. The exploration involved a comprehensive assessment of flexibility and coordination through standardized tests protocols. This experimental research utilized simple random sampling technique. The analytical portion was completed through SPSS-26. The results suggested that physical education programs can effectively enhance semester scholars, flexibility and coordination over time. Understanding the differences in skill development can help preceptors design further targeted and effective physical education classes. The conclusion of this study extracted that semester system scholars get more time on regular basis and they can perform better in flexibility and coordination components as compared with annual scholars.
