Abstract: This study investigated the impact of study habits on examination malpractice, drop out, and academic goals among secondary school adolescents in Edo State. The sample was made up of 200 students randomly selected from three secondary schools in Benin City. Three research hypotheses were generated to guide the study. A questionnaire was used to collect data for the study, and Pearson Product Moment Correlation Coefficient (r) was used to analyse the data. It was found that there was a significant correlation between study habits skills of students, and their educational goal achievement (r-0.304). There was also significant relationship between study habits and school dropout (r-0.021). The findings are indication of insufficient counselling services in the schools. Though there are other factors that may influence students’ study habits skills, lack of adequate provision of academic counselling programmes was obvious from the study and hence was strongly recommended.
