The purpose of this study was to analyze grade achievements of science students in Federal and State Secondary Schools in the Examinations conducted by the West African Examinations Councils (WAEC) and the National Examinations Council (NECO) in order to appraise how teachers of science subjects carry out their work, and to know how teachers teachings methods affect students’ grade achievements in science subjects. Ten research questions and ten null hypotheses tested at z-test (P<0.05) guided the study. Experimental research design was used, because the researcher used existing results of students examined by duly validated examination bodies of WAEC and NECO. The results of science students were used to find out their mean grade achievements from 2002 to 2006 in Agricultural Science, Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics, for the research analysis. Population of the study was all the science students in all the Federal and State Senior Secondary Schools in Anambra State. A sample of 5,904 out of which, 50% of this number was used totaling 2, 952. Simple random sampling technique with replacement was used for he study. Table by table analysis was used for the study questions and hypotheses. Discussion of research findings based on the analyzed results of students’ achievements was also presented. The findings revealed that schools lack science laboratory and those that existed were not functioning. Again teachers of science subjects especially mathematics which is the mother of all sciences were taught without adequate teaching aids. Suggestions and recommendations for further study were also postulated.
