their own ways of learning. Three hundred senior secondary school II students selected from 10 senior secondary schools in 

Ilorin, Nigeria participated in the study. Simple random sampling technique was used to select 30 students from each of the 

10 purposively sampled senior secondary schools. Data were collected using three instruments, namely, Chemistry Self￾Efficacy Questionnaire, Chemistry Metacognition Questionnaire and Chemistry Achievement Test with reliability indices of 

0.83, 0.73 and 0.86, respectively. Answers were provided to four research questions each of which has a corresponding 

hypothesis. The hypotheses were tested at 0.05 level of significance using Pearson Product Moment Correlation, regression
