Student’s performances not only based on their academic but also involved behaviour, social skills, relation with surroundings, and co-curricular activities. There are several key factors that give effect on performances of the students such as study habit, sleeping habit, leisure activities, family and friend influence.
One of the key factors is the student’s study habit. Study habit is the way that we study. It is the habit that we formed during school. Study habit can be the good ones or the bad ones.
