The research investigated the influence of creative style and gender on students' achievement in physics. The sample consisting one hundred (100) Senior Secondary II physics students, made up of 50 males and 50 females in Oruk Anam Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom State, Nigeria, were administered the Kirton Adaptor-Innovator Inventory (KAI), and the Physics Achievement Test (PAT) as instruments for the study. The three research hypotheses formulated to guide the study were tested using multiple regression analysis. The results showed that gender and creative style as factors individually and jointly exert significant influence on students' achievement in physics. 23% of the variance in the achievement scores of the physics students were accounted for by creative style. 52% of the variance in the students physics achievement score was attributable to the joint influence of creative style and gender. Based on these findings, the paper recommends that explanation or prediction of achievement in physics test should take gender and creative style into consideration.
