This study aims to investigate the relationship of students’ study habits and attitudes and their performance in licensure examinations. The participants were graduates in school year 2009-2010 from the different programs of the University which require licensure examination. The study habits and attitudes of the participants were assessed during their final year in the University by administering the “Survey of Study Habits and Attitudes” (SSHA) developed by Brown and Holtzman (1967). Their performance in the different licensure examinations was generated after one year from the records of the Philippine Professional Regulation Commission. Results of the study show that, generally, the participants had favourable study habits, exhibited fairly favourable attitudes toward teachers’ classroom behavior and methods, and performed well in the licensure examinations. The study further shows that students who have more favourable study habits and attitudes obtained better rating in the licensure examination. When study habits and attitudes were regressed, results show that study habits, expressive of students work methods and time management, can most likely predict success in licensure examination. However, the mental ability and the college achievement of students should not be ruled out as the participants of the study passed through a rigid admission and retention policy in the University.
