Abstract: This paper examines the claims and studies made by scholars and educators on the under- achievement in science of female students in comparison to their male counterparts. The searchlight beams on Physics as a science subject in Federal College of Education, Pankshin, Plateau State, Nigeria. The pooled variance formula for student t-test is employed to test the null hypothesis advanced for the study. The finding indicates a digression from findings of earlier studies. It shows that there is no significant difference between the achievement of male students in Physics and the achievement of their female counterparts in the same subject (male mean score of means = 55.79 and female mean score of means = 53.83).
