Abstract

This article examined self-concept, social network and study habit as predictors of students’ educational success using some selected post-primary schools in Lagos metropolis, Nigeria, as a case study. Questionnaires were used to collect information from 150 students in five secondary schools in the state. Three hypotheses were formulated and tested using Pearson Product Moment Correlation Statistics. The results revealed a significant connection between social network and students’ self-concept, based on the fact that r-cal (0.206) was greater than the r-crit value (0.120) @ 0.05 level of significance. Further to that, it was found that students’ study habits showed a significant correlation with both students’ academic performance and their self-concept using the value of r-cal (0.184) to be significantly greater than r-crit (0.024) at 0.05 level of significance and 148 degree of freedom. Lastly, the study revealed a significant relationship between students’ study habits and their academic performance judging from the value of r-cal (0.139) that was greater than r-crit (0.089) at 0.05 level of significance and 148 degree of freedom. Based on these findings, recommendations were made
