Abstract. Higher order boundary value problems (BVPs) play an important role modeling various scientific and engineering problems. A general recipe for a $m^{th}$ order BVPs is sparse (for any natural number $m\ge 2$).

In this article we develop an efficient numerical scheme for linear $m^{th}$ order BVPs. First we convert the higher order BVP to a system of first order BVPs. Then we use Tchebychev polynomials to approximate the solution of the BVP as a weighted sum of polynomials. We collocate at Tchebychev clustered grids to generate a system of equations to approximate the weights for the polynomials. The excellency of the numerical scheme is illustrated through some examples.
