This paper attempts to compare the participation in extralessons by the students of a senior comprehensive school and a traditional seven-year girls' school in Trinidad and Tobago. Survey data were gathered from 25 students at each level from Forms 4, 5, and 6 in each school. Data are presented on the socio-economic status of different students, participation rates by students of the two schools, subjects chosen by students for extra-lessons, costs per subject, reasons for seeking extralessons,
