Poor performance in O/L Biology at the CGCE examination can be attributed to reasons from varied sources. However, this study sought to investigate how students-related factors influence their performance in Ordinary Level (O/L) Biology at the Cameroon General Certificate of Education (CGCE) Examination.The instruments used to collect data were a questionnaire for teachers and students and the analysis of Biology GCE O/L subject reports. The instruments were made up of few close and more open-ended questions (Triangulated study).The data obtained from student questionnaires were analyzed separately from that of teachers using frequencies and percentages. Thematic analysis was also employed to open-ended items of the questionnaires. The results showed that Students were blamed for their poor performance in Biology O/L at the CGCE examination for the following cluster of reasons; Laziness, poor time management, misinterpretation of questions, do not follow instructions on question papers, speculation, phobia in drawing, poor communication skills, peer pressure, drug addiction, etc.
