Abstract:

This study presents the different factors affecting the academic performances of freshmen BSE students. It has four objectives. First is to identify the students’ profile. Second is to identify the way respondents determine the different factors affecting the respondents’ academic performances along personal, home, peer, environment and school-related factor. Third is to determine the significant difference on the factors affecting the students’ academic performances when grouped according to their profile. Fourth is to determine if there is a significant relationship on the factors affecting the students’ academic performances to their general weighted average. Using the descriptive-correlative method to 47 freshmen from the Bachelor of Secondary Education students, the following are discovered: majority of them are in the age range of 15-17, most of them are female and they belong to the Ifugao/Ilocano group; the statements along personal and school-related factor are moderately true to the respondents while the statements along home, peer and environment-related factor are slightly true; there are significant differences on the factors affecting the academic performances of students when grouped by profile; school and environment-related factors have high relationship with students’ general weighted average, home and peer-related factors have moderate relationship with students’ general average while the personal-related factor appears to have no relationship with their general weighted average.
