Abstract: This study examined the predictive power of JSS achievement on SSS achievement in Epe local government area in Lagos state. The population for the study consisited of all the twenty-five secondary schools in Epe local government area of Lagos state. From these schools, six were randomly selected. The senior secondary schools certificate results from computer sheets for the year 2008 and the corresponding junior secondary school certificate computer results of year 2005 were collected from the selected schools. The data were extracted from the computer sheets and analysed using linear correlation and correlation matrix. Results showed that there was significant relationship between the overall performance of the JSS achievement and overall performance of the SSS achievement. Out of the nine subjects correlated, five significantly correlated: Soc. studies (r=0.346;P<0.01); Bus studies(r=0.598;P<0.01);IRK(r=0.280; P<0.05); CRK(r=0.417;P<0.01) Agric (r=0.199;P<0.05) while four did not. It was recommended that since the achievement in JSS positively correlated with the achievement in SSS, students should not wait until they got to the senior secondary before they begin to be serious with their studies. Government should also encourage teachers to put in their best to make sure that much is imparted on the students' right from the junior secondary level
