A total of 118 students were invited to participate in the survey using the convenience sampling technique. However, 82 (69%) students returned signed consent forms and were then asked to complete the questionnaire. All respondents provided information about their study schedules and routines.Results: Most of the students who scored between 80 and 90% in their academics tended to study for about 2-4 hours a day, could concentrate for 1-2 hours at a stretch, and switched places during their studies. Students scoring above 90% reported studying from 9 to more than 12 hours daily, studying from 2 to more than 3 hours in one stretch, and their studies were unaffected by vacations.Conclusion: The students achieving higher academic scores studied regularly for about 2-4 hours daily, could concentrate for 1-2 hours at a stretch, preferred switching places during their studies, and took breaks that lasted around 30 minutes.
