Abstract: The paper considered the effect of motivation and gender individually and compositely on student academic/cognitive achievement inJS business studies in Akinyele local government council area of Oyo state because the subject is the elementary preparatory ground for future managers.The population for the study was made up of all JSS business studies students in the local government area. Two-stage sampling was employed to randomly select four schools out of thirty-five junior secondary schols in the area and secondly to randomly select an intact arm each from each of the sampled schools in the study.Two instruments constructed and validated by the researchers were administered on the subjects; the resulting data were then collated and analysed using correlation and t-test on the basis of motivation and gender. Results show that motivation has no significant relationship with students'cognitive achievement; likewise, gender also has no significant effect on students' cognitive achievement in business studies.
