There are many factors, which influence the achievement in teaching and learning of Physics at secondary stage. In the edition, it is observed that cognitive style, classroom environment and achievement motivation have impact on achievement in physics. To enhance the performance in physics, variety of curricular, co-curricular and extracurricular programmes can be instituted in schools periodically. Teaching may emphasize more on fundamental knowledge than on subject matter. More emphasis should be given on organized and meaningful learning than mechanical learning. Teachers may encourage and help pupils to participate in quiz programmes, exhibitions and other competitive tests related to physics. The findings of this study will be useful for teachers, school heads, school management and policy makers.
