A descriptive comparative study to determine agriculture students= performance in science as compared to agriculture found superior performance in science than in agriculture. Students= performance in science was highly correlated with performance in agriculture. Students from urban, mission and single schools performed significantly higher than students from rural, government, and mixed schools. Also, students from Manzini and Hhohho districts, generally, had significantly higher scores than students who came from Lubombo and Shiselweni districts. Science, school classification (single/mixed), and gender (male/female) predicted academic performance in agriculture.
