Abstract: 

This paper is a study of students’ academic performance in the University of Ibadan. It was discovered that certain number of students who were admitted into the University, for the attainment of a degree, were unable to meet the requirements to be able to graduate on time. A situation where some students have to study longer than the four- year term is undesirable and should be checked. It is this kind of unwanted situation that prompted this project, which seeks for the factors that may be associated with the students’ performance, and also looks into the ways and means by which the performance on. As observed from the tests carried out not all the factors have significant effects on the academic performance of the students of the University. Recommendations are therefore put forward to help enhance the academic performance of students in our higher institutions of learning.
