The study tried to examine the interaction between two independent variables of selective attention and cognitive development on Achievement in Genetics at the Secondary School level. In looking at the problem of this study three null hypotheses were generated for testing at 0.05 level of significance. Factorial Analysis of Variance design with one dependent variable and two independent variables at two levels together with the t-test was used in the Analysis of the result. Two hundred and forty Senior Secondary School three (S.S.S III) students randomly selected from six secondary schools in Ethiope and Okpe Local Government areas of Delta State were used as subjects of the study. These were randomly assigned to four groups, sixty students per group. Five research instruments were developed and validated for the study. The results of the study showed that the three null hypotheses generated were rejected. The analysis of the date thus revealed that the variables of selective attention and cognitive development are thus two separate interactive independent variables importance in science education.
