**Abstract**

A numerical investigation of an unsteady MHD natural convection flow past an impulsively moving plate with ramped temperature. The dimensionless governing coupled, non- linear boundary layer partial differential equations are solved by a finite element method. The effects of the various dimensionless parameters entering into the problem on the primary velocity, secondary velocity, temperature and concentration profiles throughout the boundary layer are investigated through graphs. In addition, the analytical and numerical results of the local skin friction, couple stress coefficients, the rate of heat and mass transfers at the wall are prepared in tabular forms
