ABSTRACT

This paper employed a descriptive survey study of students’ academic performance in General English 1V (GSE 221) of 2012/2013 academic session in the Kwara State College of Education (Tech.) Lafiagi, Nigeria. Two hundred and eighty-six students were sampled for the study. Profoma was used to collect data. Frequency count and percentage, frequency bar chart, t-test and descriptive statistics were used to analyze the data collected. The results showed that students’ academic performance in General English was awfully poor. Findings on gender depicted that better academic performance in English was not gender specific. The paper concluded that language studies should be enhanced if students’ effective communication and good academic performance must be achieved. Recommendations were suggested at the end of the study.
