The study aimed at comparing male and female secondary school principals\' administrative competencies in supervision. The sample was made up of 60 male and 60 female principals totaling 120 randomly selected from 10 existing educational zones in Akwa Ibom State, Nigeria. Two hypotheses formed the basis of the study. One tested at 0.05 level of significance using t- test, while the other was tested using analysis of covariance and multiple classification analysis. The results showed that male principals were not significantly better in supervision than their female counterparts. Teaching experience had no significant influence on principals\' supervision competencies but administrative experience has great influence on their supervision competencies.
