This research reported in this contribution identifies the thinking styles of second year students in Information Systems and Technology on the Westville Campus of the University of KwaZulu-Natal, situated in Durban, South Africa. The article explores whether there is a relationship between student thinking styles and their examination marks. The subjects were 134 second year IS&T students. Harrison & Bramson (1984) identified five primary thinking styles, the Analyst, Synthesist, Pragmatist, and Realist styles. Most of the findings in this study support those of Harrison & Bramson (1984). Implications of these findings for both teaching and research are discussed.
