Academic performance has become an important evidence of determining the quality in Malaysia's education system. The examination data is collected on the previous students' examinations yet to be tested for their coming SPM. The other related data such as family background and schooling information are also involved. The raw data is preprocessed and analyzed using statistical method. The results from the
statistical analysis indicate the significant contribution of these attributes to the achievement model. The combinations of input variables, hidden layer and output
nodes are explored to predict the students' performance. Seven models are constructed based on seven subjects to relate them with other factors for the purpose of descriptive analysis. The relationship between examination results and other factors are investigated thoroughly to enhance the prediction model. The result indicates that Neural Networks has high potential to be used in predicting students' performance.
