This study investigated the relationship between study habits, examination anxiety and academic achievement among secondary school students in Ibadan using survey design. Two hundred randomly selected students from four secondary schools (two each from rural and urban areas) in Ibadan constituted the sample. Each school had a sample size of 50 students. Two validated inventories and a self developed questionnaire were used for data collection. Two hypotheses were tested at 0.05 level of significance, using chi-square statistic technique.
The findings showed that no significant relationship exists between the study habits, examination anxiety and academic achievement of the participants gender-wise. However, it was found that significant relationship exists among these variables with respect to student's family type and their geographical location. Far reaching recommendations were made in line with the result findings.
