Many students do badly academically, due to factors other than low intellectual capacity. One of such factor is poor study habits, which often result in poor academic performance even among the naturally bright students. Habits are true indicators of individuality in a person. So study habits are the behavior of an individual related to studies. The pattern of behavior adopted by students in the pursuit of their studies is considered under the caption of their study habits which in turn reveal their personality. Learner’s learning character is characterized by his study habits that serve as the vehicle of learning. Some students study more but they fail to achieve more. Others study less but achieve more. Success of each student definitely depends upon ability, intelligence and effort of students. No doubt, regular study habits bring their own rewards in the sense of achievement of success. The study habit adopted by students can either be poor and ineffective or well planned and effective. It is from this background that this study looked at study habit as predictor of students’ performance in senior secondary school financial accounting.
