Abstract

This research is carried out in order to recognize factors which influence the achievement of Form Four students in Penilaian Menengah Rendah (PMR) Science and Mathematics in the district of Padang Terap and Pendang. The objectives of this research are to determine the relationship between sex, race, students' interest and initiative towards the achievement in Science and Mathematics, the relationship between family factors such as highest academic level of parents', occupational status, income and parents' involvement with the achievement in Science and Mathematics. It is also to determine the relationship between factors of teacher, learning facilities, references and resources with the achievement in Science and Mathematics and the influence of research variables towards the achievement in Science and Mathematics. 341 students are chosen from five Gred A Secondary Schools who involved in research. They are the Form Four Students who sat PMR in 1995. The findings of this study show that, there is a significant relationship between sex, race, students' interest, initiative, parents' education, parents' involvement, teacher and resources in the achievement of mathematics but there is no significant relationship between mothers' education, parents' occupational status, family income and facilities with the achievement.
