This study was aimed to analyze the differences of academic achievement and results of the 8 subjects' test from the Ordinary National Educational Test (O-NET) that took place during 2010 and 2013 of the students Grades 6 and 9 in Chachoengsao province, Thailand. The samples were taken from 81 schools under the Educational Service Area (ESA). It was shown that the academic achievement for Thai and English languages yielded lowest scores, while the O-NET score for English language was at the lowest level in both years for grade 6 students. The subject that yielded a different academic achievement from O-NET was English language, which gave a similar result in both years. The scores in both subject of Health and Physical Education and Thai language, were at balanced levels. Students of grade 9 had the lowest scores for academic achievement in Mathematics, while the O-NET score was at the lowest level in both years. The comparison between scores of academic achievement and O-NET showed that the subject of Science and English language yielded the highest difference, whereas the most balanced score of both years was in the subject of Health and Physical Education. The lower or equivalent scores were mostly found in English language. In regarding to the Radar Chart, the lowest score that needed for an improvement was the English language for both grades 6 and 9.
