Abstract—The purpose of this study is to measure the
proportion of variation in the academic performance in required
major courses form the subjects in core courses of Food Science
and Technology students. Data were collected from a sample of
183 online reports of science students graduating from Food
Science and Technology Program, Suan Sunandha Rajabhat
University during the academic year of 2011-2017. Variables
used to construct a regression model were grades of the subjects
in core courses and average grades of the subjects in required
major courses. The findings revealed that there is a positive
significant strong linear relationship between the core courses
achievement and the academic performance in required major
courses. Organic chemistry, Physical chemistry, Analytical
chemistry, Microbiology and Basic biology grades express their
strong relationship with academic performance in required
major courses. The highest of the proportion of variation in the
academic performance is Analytical chemistry.
Index Terms—Academic performance, achievement, core courses, required major courses.
