Abstract: In this paper, students' perceptions on how they could do well in science are compared across nations. Data from eight countries are compared, namely England, Switzerland, the United States, Singapore, Hong Kong, Israel, Germany and Japan. These countries were selected for this study as they were part of an original six-nation study with fairly similar curricula, learning environments and pupil achievement. In this analysis, students' perceptions of the factors that enhanced their achievements in science will be probed deeper with respect to the amount of homework, personal learning like memorizing of texts and classroom activities, and the outcome of the findings may prompt further research.
