Abstract

The descriptive-correlational method was used in the study. Eighty-five (85) out of 104 first year radiologic technology students were chosen using purposive sampling as respondents. The allied medical courses admission test (AMCAT) scores and general education performance during school year 2008-2009 were obtained and documentary analysis was performed on the data. Students with AMCAT scores were included as respondents. Frequency, mean, t-test, standard deviation and Pearson Product Moment of Correlation Coefficient were applied in data analysis. The following conclusions were draw: 1) Most of the respondents were regular students and came from private secondary schools; 2) The AMCAT scores of the respondents showed a high average performance; 3) Most of the freshman radiologic technology students of DLSHSI had an overall satisfactory performance in general education courses; 4) The AMCAT scores and general education performance had a high positive correlation. Therefore, it can be considered as a valid predictor of the level of success or failure in the general education courses.
