The study examined the relative and combined contributions of the home and school factors as determinants of studentsí achievement in Senior Secondary School Economics, and carried in some Secondary Schools in Botswana. Two specially designed questionnaires (The Home Factor Scale (HFS), and School Factor Scale (SFS)) were used to collect data from two hundred students who were randomly sampled which were analyzed with stepwise multiple regression. The finding implied that the achievement of students in Economics could be predicted by the combination of studentsí home and school factors. It was recommended that teachers should perform their supervisory roles of giving out exercises and marking at the expected time so that the students can get the feedback at the appropriate time while parents should also be favourably disposed to the academic work of their children.
