This research is based on the results of Senior Secondary School Certificate
Examination (SSSCE) released by the West African Examinations Council in elective and
core subjects of study at Potsin T. I. Ahmadiyya Secondary School from 2000 to 2003. The
elective programmes of study are General Arts, Business, Home Economics and Technical
subjects. The data also includes the gender and religious affiliation of candidates.
The main objective of the study is to identify variables that significantly determine
students' academic performance at SSSCE.
Preliminary analysis was carried on the data using frequency and percentage
distribution, multiple bar and line graphs and correlation analysis. In order to establish
concrete statistical evidence, multiple regression was performed on the data. The results
revealed that sex and religious affiliation did not significantly explain students' academic
performance. However, elective subjects and Business and Home Economics related
subjects significantly determine academic performance. In addition, the study revealed that
elective subjects accounts for most of the variation in academic performance than core
subjects. Students' performance in elective subjects was better than performance in core
Finally, the developed regression model was found to explain 85% of variations in
students' academic performance.
