ABSTRACT

The study sought to establish the factors causing low pass rate in Biology in Zhombe circuit.

A qualitative research design was used which enabled the researcher to explore human

behaviour that cannot be quantified. It also enabled me to understand factors causing low

pass rate from a holistic view point because it employs a wide variety of methods in its

enquiry. Purposive sampling was used to select heads of departments and biology teachers

while stratified random sampling was used to select the students. Data was generated using

semi-structured interviews, observations guide, as well as document analysis. The research

study has revealed that low pass rate in biology is caused by many factors which include lack

of experienced teachers and shortage of resources among other factors. The study

recommends in service training of teachers to equip them with effective child centred

approaches of teaching and fund raising activities to raise funds that can be used to buy the

teaching and learning resources.
