This study assessed the influence of Planned repetition skill on the academic performance of students in secondary school Physics in Khana Local government Area of Rivers State, Nigeria, using five research questions and one hypothesis. The population consists of teachers and Physics students in the secondary section. Out of the 240 students in the sample area, 160 of them were selected in addition to the 30 teachers selected from the total of 39 teachers to make up the sample size, with the aid of random sampling technique. The questionnaire titled “Application of Planned Repetition Skill Questionnaire” (APRSQ) was part of the instrument and a topic on fundamentals of motion in physics was used for the quasi- experimental study. The mean  was used to analyse the research questions and the z – test analysis for the hypothesis which was tested at .05 level of significance. The findings show that Physics teachers have low awareness of the concept and application techniques of the Planned repetition skill and that this and other factors militate against the utilization of this teaching skill. Based on this it was recommended that the government and other stakeholders in the education sector should fund and organize trainings, workshops and seminars for teachers on this and other teaching skill; measures should be put in place towards ensuring that professional teachers are employed, among others.
