Abstract

Every student has a unique learning style. Their personalities are shaped by factors affecting their learning styles. Besides that, it is evident that students’ distinctive learning style has a significant impact on their academic success. A cross-sectional study was done to investigate the degree of association between students’ learning styles and academic achievement. This research was conducted in Kuala Lumpur, and the participants were first- to third-year biomedical science students. This survey included 84 students, where 24 students were selected from each year. The learning style inventory questionnaire was used to measure students’ learning styles through a survey. According to the findings, the majority of students had the highest amount of visual learning styles for each academic year. However, the majority of the first-year students had the second-highest learning style, which scored the highest for visual learning style compared to auditory and kinaesthetic. Furthermore, the academic year affected the mean score of learning styles as demonstrated by two-way ANOVA tests (p<0.01). The correlation test was then performed, and the results show that only audio learning style and CGPA had a positive and significant correlation (p<0.05). In conclusion, this study revealed that academic performance was not influenced by learning style. Nonetheless, students’ learning styles are different for the different academic years.
