  • EK Umunadi


This study was conducted to ascertain the relationship between the male and female students’ academic performance in radio communication in technical colleges in Delta State. There are two research questions and one null hypothesis formulated to guide the study. The population for the study consists of 735 students of the six technical colleges in Delta State offering Radio Communication. There was no sampling because of the small number of students involved in the study. The two research questions were analyzed using the percentages while the null hypothesis was tested using x2-square at 0.05 level of significance. The findings revealed that the male performed better than the female counterpart. Also, it was revealed that the urban students performed better than their rural counterpart in the same examination conducted by NABTEB in 2005 & 2006. There is a significant difference in the mean scores of male and female students in Radio Communication in urban and rural technical colleges in Delta state. It was based on the findings of the study that appropriate recommendations and suggestions were made.
