The study in hand was conducted to explore the connection between study habits and academic performance of secondary school students across various schools in the city of Ludhiana. A predictive study was run to understand the contextual importance of the variables of study habits and academic performance. For the purpose of this study a sample of 120 students (60 males and 60 females) were each chosen randomly from the schools. The age range of students was 13-16 years (mean age = 14.55 years for males and 14.15 years for females). The data was analysed using correlation and t-test. Results revealed a negative correlation between study habits and academic performance (r= -0.32), whereas, through t –test it was confirmed that there is a significant difference between study habits and academic performance (p < .05), although no significant gender differences were observed between the two variables.
