In this paper, the Galerkin method is applied to second order ordinary differential equation with mixed boundary after converting the given linear second order ordinary differential equation into equivalent boundary value problem by considering a valid assumption for the independent variable and also converting mixed boundary condition in to Neumann type by using secant and Runge-Kutta methods. The resulting system of equation is solved by direct method. In order to check to what extent the method approximates the exact solution, a test example with known exact solution is solved and compared with the exact solution graphically as well as numerically.
