The complexity and difficulty ascribed to computer programming have been asserted to be the causes of its high rate of failure record and attrition. It is opined that programming either to novice, middle learner, and the self-branded geeks is always a course to be apprehensive of different studies with varying findings. Studies on factors leading to the success of programming course in higher institutions have been carried out. Many Universities have greatly high failure rates, in practically, Java. This really motivates this study, which aims at discovering the factors affecting the success of programming courses.
