Abstract: The study investigated the re-tuning female students’ psychological status in chemistry in secondary schools in Kogi State, Nigeria. The purpose was to investigate the psychological status of the female students as against their male counterparts in the pursuit of chemistry and the motivational status of the female students as against the male students and to know the interest status of the female students against the males. Three hypotheses were used in the study. A sample of six hundred (600) was randomly selected from Central and Western Senatorial Districts of Kogi State (300 females and 300 males). The study design was survey. The instrument used for data collection was questionnaire, structured and validated (with face and content) validity and subjected to a test re-test reliability index of 0.75r. Data collection was carried out by the six research assistants used for the study. Data was analyzed using Spearman Ranking Order at 0.05level of Significance and at 598 degree of Freedom. The study indicated that female students do not study chemistry based on phobia and the female students believed that chemistry is time consuming, has a lot of theories and more calculations. The study recommends among others that female students who pass chemistry with high grade should be given incentives in monetary and award of excellence to motivate others.
