Low self-control has also been associated with psychological distress, difficulties at work or in school, and
the emergence of mental health issues, however, there is very limited information established in Malaysian
curriculum and education. The aim of this research is to investigate the impact of self-control in education
and it`s pattern in the Malaysian curriculum. This study examined 41 research papers published in recent
years and met the inclusion criteria using the PRISMA screening technique. The most studied variables,
according to the findings, were academic performance, emotion regulation, and well-being. The findings
reveal the impacts of self-control in education as it promotes personal development, help-seeking
behaviour, altruism, and coping mechanisms. The literature review conducted in this study indicates the
importance of incorporating self-control into education to improve students' overall well-being. Thus,
educators must be aware of the significance of practising self-control in the classroom.
