Student entry qualifications are vital issue. This paper presents the influence of gender, entry qualification and entry results towards the student performance in university. 65 students were randomly selected in Faculty of mechanical engineering, University Malaysia Pahang. Entries qualifications are from Foundation Program, Higher Certificate of Malaysian Education (STPM) and Diploma Certificate. STPM is form six examinations in secondary school level. Genetic Algorithms (GA) and Radian Basis Function Network (RBFN) method was used to measure and predict the student’s performance.
