The different mean (average) scores of the two groups were analysed using an unpairing student t-test/ Mann Whitney U test depend on the equality of variant. The results of the testing revealed that the average score achieved by the students using face to face learning methods was 84.4737 while average scores achieved by the students with blended learning was 90.0000. Both scores were highly significant different with p < 0.01. In conclusion, blended learning is more effective compared to face to face learning
