ABSTRACT
This study investigated the factors which affect the academic performance of the married women students in the Faculty of Education, Kampala International University. The study arose out of the belief that dependency and domestic roles fall on every woman and that the married women are likely to bear much of their roles and hence are expected to perform poorer in their academics than the unmarried. The study was guided by the following objectives: whether domestic roles, family support significantly affected the academic performance of the married women students and whether the performance married women significantly differed from that or the unmarried women students.

Using a purposive sampling, a total of 250 respondents were selected from both unmarried and married women students. Of those, 198 were married while 52 were unmarried.

The study was basically quantitative and qualitative using across-sectional survey research design involving the use of a questionnaire and an interview guide.

The validity and reliability of instruments was established and after data was collected. Data was analyzed using descriptive statistics which included frequencies and percentage.
In order to guide the study. the research was based on the following research questions:

• Is there any significant relationship between domestic roles, family support of married women students and their academic performance?                           

• Is there any significant difference between the academic performance of the married and the unmarried women students?

The study revealed that all the married women students engaged in domestic activities indicated by 100% (all respondents) and these activities had a negative effect on their academic performance. But there was an inverse relationship between engagements in domestic activities and academic performance.

The study also revealed that the academic performance of the married women was better than that of the unmarried women students. But the difference was insignificant.

It was therefore concluded that the more the married women students engaged in domestic activities the less they performed in their studies. But family support had a positive effect on the married women's academic performance

Basing on the results of the study recommendations were made on page 36 and the researcher suggested areas for further research on page 37.
