Abstract: This paper delved into ascertaining the state of the art of gender representation in Physics in Federal College of Education, Pankshin-Nigeria. The data used in the study were obtained from admissions made into the Department of Physics in the College for the academic sessions 2008/2009 to 2012/2013. A total of 257 samples were used and the simple percentage statistic was employed to analyze the data. The results revealed the persistence of female under-achievement in Physics. Recommendations were proffered, which when followed, may reduce or eliminate female under-representation in Physics. Such recommendations included sensitizing parents and the Nigerian society on the need to desist from stereotyping and religious beliefs that are harmful to education.
