The present study was concerned with the investigation of factor pattern in order to discuss the clusters in which the different aspects of achievement in Chemistry fall at senior secondary level. Researcher constructed 18 achievement tests in Chemistry. Authentic scores obtained from reliable and valid objective type tests were taken into items and distributed over the whole course to get factors which were obtained after first reiteration. Orthogonal rotation had to be carried out and Turnstone’s method of Extended Vectors was used, as it leads to the simple structure. Only the first five factors were taken for rotation. The obtained results indicate that the fundamental abilities essential for learning Chemistry are: (a) Conceptual and Visual Perception (b) Deductive Reasoning (c) Mechanism and nomenclature (d) Numerical (e) Inference. Keywords: Factors, Learning, Chemistry, Senior Secondary.
