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.
