This study investigated the psychological and sociological determinants of academic achievement of school-going adolescents. Six self-report measures were administered randomly to 280 senior secondary III students in Ibadan. Results showed that the six psychological and sociological factors (motivation, anxiety, and locus of control, self-esteem, parent's education, parental discipline, culture, and governance) could jointly determine academic achievement of adolescents. Specifically, motivation, anxiety, parental discipline, and governance were found to be significant in determining academic achievement among adolescents. Implications of these on academic achievement were discussed in the study.
