Abstract
This study focused on the assessment of the students’ profiles and their performance in chemistry. It further determined whether there is a significant relationship between their profile and their performance in the subject. The 244 respondents were from a government school and some private schools in the province of Cagayan. This study used the descriptive-correlational survey method. The data were gathered through a structured questionnaire of two parts. The first part of the profile includes, among others, their performance in Math and English; and the other part for their performance in chemistry. The data were treated using the simple frequency count and the weighted mean, standard deviation, the t-test, and the Pearson product-moment correlation technique. This study found out that the parents, though most of them earned some education, did not land jobs in the offices but went into farming. Most of the respondents, therefore, attended a public school for their high school education.
