Valency:- The number of electrons donated (lose) or accepted (gain) or shared by atom of an element in order to complete its octet & attain stability is called as Valency. 

Valence electrons:-The electrons present in the outermost orbit of an atom determine the valency of an atom and hence called valence electrons.
