The study adopted a pretest-posttest control group quasi experimental research design. A total of 403 primary school pupils (coeducational public and private schools) selected from twelve schools in three states in the southwestern Nigeria. The instrument for data collection was the Basic Science Achievement Test. The result revealed that pupils exposed to science specialist delivery model had a significant higher mean score than those exposed to the generalist delivery model. It was concluded that science specialist model will provide a better background to pupils in science than the generalist model.
