ABSTRACT
Most students have to take biology as one of the subjects graded in their CGPA. But not all students want to be a doctor or have much interest in biology. Quizzes and test are frequently used to measure the level of understanding of students towards specific topic of a subject Biology quizzes are common, and their marks or scores in these quizzes can be used to measure either their effort in the quizzes or their interest in biology or maybe both. This research paper discussed the relationship between the interest in biology and their total score, gender and their study style and lastly the relationship between scores 1. INTRODUCTION

2.1. Overview
Biology is one of the compulsory courses that have to be taken by ASASIpintar students. This course aims to enhance the students’ understanding and knowledge in biological sciences. Teaching methods include small group lecture, tutorial, laboratory experiments, independent learning and problem based learning. Students will be assessed by weekly quizzes, lab reports, and mid-semester and final semester examination. However, the interest level of students in Biology differs from one another. Other than that, their style of studying Biology or doing their revision on this particular subject is also different between students. This project aims to study the relationship between these two factors, which are the level of interest in Biology and their style of learning and studying the subject with the scores that these students gained in their topical quizzes. 2.2. Objectives

2.3.1. To investigate the relationship between interest and total score 2.3.2. To investigate the distribution of interest in biology among student 2.3.3. To investigate the relationship between gender and study style 2.3. Research Question

2.4.4. Does interest has any relationship with the total scores gain by student in their quizzes? 2.4.5. What are the distribution of interest in biology among student? 2.4.6. Is there any relationship between gender and their style of study biology? 2.4. Research Hypothesis

A statistical hypothesis is a conjecture about the population parameter. This conjecture may or may not be true. Null hypothesis (Ho) is a statistical hypothesis states that there is no difference between a parameter and a specific value, or that there is no difference between the two parameters while alternative hypothesis (H1) is a statistical hypothesis that states the existence of a difference between a parameter and a specific value, or states that there is a difference between two parameters. 2.5.7. Hypothesis 1

Ho: There is no relationship between interest and total score H1: There is relationship between interest and total score
2.5.8. Hypothesis 3
Ho: The students’ interest in biology are distributed as follows; 17.5% are not interested, 20% are moderate and 62.5% are interested in biology. H1: The distribution are not the same as stated in Ho.

2.5.9. Hypothesis 2
Ho: There is no relationship between gender and study style
H1: There is relationship between gender and study style
2.5.10. Hypothesis 4
Ho: There is no relationship between interest and study style
H1: There is relationship between...
