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.
