Abstract:

This research investigated the predictive ability of credit grades in Mathematics in senior secondary certificate (SSC) examinations in predicting the success of students in Educational Management in universities in Ekiti and Ondo States, Nigeria. As a descriptive research, the study population comprised all the 3 universities in the tw o states. Since Educational Management is being taught in only 2 of the universities, only 2 universities were purposively selected for the study, data were collected through an inventory and analyzed with the use of t-test, correlation analysis, analysis of variance and linear regression. The finding revealed that there was a significant relationship between the entry grade point of credit in Mathematics and the performance of Educational Management students measured by the Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) in universities in the two States. It was also found that the entry credit grades obtained by Educational Management students in Mathematics in senior secondary certificate examinations on the findings of the study, it is recommended that more emphasis should be given to the teaching of mathematics in secondary schools in the two states to enable better performance of students in the universities.
