In modern Uganda, the government has increased an urge for science if the path of growth and development is to be achieved in Uganda. It has been also observed that as long as learners study sciences, their contribution to the national development will be visibly seen. This compelled the government to make the study of science compulsory at the ordinary level. However, the choice to study sciences at an advanced level has been left to students so as they can exercise their rights. Three main objectives will be used to assess the factors affecting choice of science subject combination in selected schools in Wakiso District.
