An exploratory survey was undertaken to determine whether secondary school learners have certain preferences regarding the biology they study at school and whether learners from co-educational and single-sex schools hold the same opinions. A survey schedule comprising two components was developed. The first component consisted of 15 items related to the biology learning programme, and the second consisted of 10 items related to the school. These schedules were completed by 384 Grade 11 learners (16 to 17-year-olds) in co-educational and single-sex schools in Gauteng province.
