Seventy four students of Integrated Science/Physics and Computer Science/Physics were sampled in four Colleges of Educations to analyze their performance in Physics. Frequency counts, percentages and T-test were used to analyse their results from year one to final year in Physics. Results shows that there was no significant difference between Integrated Science and Computer Science students’ academic performance in Physics: mean difference in academic performance of Integrated Science/Physics and Computer Science/Physics students was not significantly difference and there was no relationship between students’ academic performance of Integrated Science/Physics and Computer Science/Physics. The paper made some recommendations based on the findings.
