The teachers’ external factors investigated are the students’ background, students’ needs, class size, classroom climate and school goals. Meanwhile, the teachers’ background factors are the academic qualification, position grade, research course attendance, teaching hours per week, teaching experience, teaching experience before teaching the sixth form, teaching experience at the sixth form and subject classification.
