The extent of student’s learning in academics may be determined by the grades a student earns for a period of learning has been done. It is believed that a grade is a primary indicator of such learning. If a learner earns high grades it is concluded that they may also have learned a lot while low grades indicate lesser learning. However, many experiences and studies found out that there are also several factors that would account for the grades. No single factor can be definitely pointed out as predicting grades.
It has been interplay of so many factors – gender, IQ, study habits, age, year level, parent’s educational attainment, social status, number of siblings, birth order, etc. In fact, almost all of existing environmental and personal factors are a variable of academic performance. However, at this point in time, the researchers would like to investigate the possible relationship of study habits. Ever since Spanish Era prevailed, Filipinos had been become attached and greatly affected by the mark left onto everyone; the popular so – called “Mañana Habit” which spontaneously came across into everyone’s daily lives that for many, for sure a big cause of having a hard time focusing on some works on a certain day or schedule.
Apparently, it had been generation by generation that young adults mostly in collegiate stage perform these habits naturally despite of knowing its very root effect; having low or even failing grades. As for this matter, students who are significantly concerned regarding grades and class standing are now rapidly gaining numbers, and for one cause; poor/ bad study habits. It is indeed that majority know that tertiary level has far more different grading system other than in high school or in elementary. Regarding of the percentage, attendance which seems for others a simple and not so important matter even lined up with major exams and quizzes. Though it may be only 10%, it must be still considered for coming across into it, which says that “problems start with smaller ones being unsettled”, means that upon losing it, even rather a means of losing so much (pertaining to quizzes and exams not taken due to this matter). Thus, the main factor contributing to it is laziness in cooperation of tardiness; which only pertains to some of the different habits causing someone to fail.
