The research was realized on a sample of 552 respondents high school students from the first, second, third and fourth year. The research was realized by applying total 10 variables for assessment of the morphological characteristics, in order to define the multivariate and univariate differences among the examined respondents at different age. Based on the obtained results it is concluded that there are statistically significant differences in the multivariate and univariate space in the analyzed students. The variables for assessment of the height and weight of the body, as well as variables for assessment of the length measurements of the upper extremities show that the results are in accordance with the age, whereas the youngest participants show the lowest values. The variables for assessment of the length measurements of the lower limbs as well as the circumference show no big differences between the adjacent ages, which means that the growth of values of these variables takes a longer period of time. Generally, it can be concluded that there are significant differences between students of different age in the most of the examined variables, however, all of them are a result of chronological age of the respondents, which, normally is within the usual prospects.
