There are 22% of the respondents answered 3 to 4 hours, while 20% managed to study in less than 1 hour only. As you can see 14% of them allotted 5 to 6 hours, and the 10% of the students chose others. It shows that most of the students spent 1 to 2 hours in studying, and only few consumed 5 to 6 hours a day. This is the same result as in the survey “How many hours should you study per day?” posted in Student Doctor Network (2010). Based on the data showed, 23.93% answered 1 to 2 hours only, while 5.85% of the respondents voted 5 to 6 hours of studying. This means that students have their own amount of time spent in studying. No specific length of time is used in studying as a whole. According to Cat (2010), it depends on the students’ capability to understand what they are studying about. Students have different learning ability level, which is another factor why they take so much time in studying.
