However, at this point in time, the researchers would like to determine the possible relationship of study habits to the academic achievement of Bachelor of Elementary Education students in Nueva Ecija University of Science and Technology.
Statement of the problem
This study intended to find out the factors affecting the study habits of undergraduate –Bachelor of Elementary students in Nueva Ecija University of Science and Technology.
Specifically, it aims to answer the following: 1. What is the profile of the respondents according to: 1.1 Time management 1.2 Learning Skills 1.3 Study Skills
2. What extent of influence did the independent variables have on students study habits?
