This study sought to determine the readiness of the Grade 11 STEM students in terms of physical and mental aspects in transitioning from online to blended learning modality. A quantitative approach, particularly a descriptive-correlational design was utilized in this study with 130 respondents. Results revealed that the senior high school students are ready in both physical and mental aspects in transitioning from online to blended learning modality. Moreover, it was found that there is a strong positive correlation between the physical and mental readiness of the students. It is therefore recommended that the students should learn how to properly manage their time to avoid cramming and stress and that the teachers should also be given more trainings to cater to the various needs of the learners in the blended learning modality.
