We conducted an academic survey in science for 97 undergraduates of teacher training courses using 26 science problems of the national school achievement tests for 9th grade students at lower secondary school in Japan. Based on the results, we found the following trends in their academic abilities : The average correctness of the undergraduates is about 62% and is only 10 points better than that of nationwide 9th graders. Although the undergraduates are good at Biology, they are poorer at Chemistry than nationwide 9th graders. From the correlation in the correctness for each problem between the undergraduates and 9th graders, both of them share some common weaknesses. For example, the pre−service teachers are still poor at understanding about electricity, buoyancy, dissolution of substances in water and recognizing strata spatially. In order to train undergraduates to teach science sufficiently in the near future, it is necessary to improve teacher training programs as undergraduates can overcome their weak points steadily.
