Abstract

This study sought to find out the nature of senior secondary school students' study habits in some selected districts in the Central Region of Ghana. Five hypotheses were tested at p<0.05, using the chi square. The descriptive sample survey design was used. Five hundred (500) students constituted the sample size. The findings indicated, among others, that (i) no significant differences existed between the study habits of male and female students; (ii) no significant differences existed between the study habits of SSS forms 1 and 3 students; (iii) no significant differences existed between the study habits of boarding and day students; and (iv) study habits of students from high socio-economic homes did not differ significantly from students from low socio-economic homes. The recommendations made include (i) the need to teach study skills to senior secondary school students so that they can all cultivate good and effective study habits; and (ii) equal opportunities for studying should be provided to all students irrespective of sex.
