The independent variables: mean CGPA of major, minor and PPIB subjects will be tested with the dependent variables CGP A by using correlation test to find out the relationship between them. Besides, demographic factor of gender and race were added to examine the relationship between the dependent variables and the independent variables. Furthermore, two way ANOV A also added to this study to find whether there is an main effect on the demographic factor in each category of the subject. Regression model had been added to this study to find out which category of the subjects that influence the academic performance most. In this research, 692 students from SST who graduate in the year 2007 were taken as the sample of this study It is important to find out which category of the subject that influence the CGPA most because a student with lower CGPA was found hardly to find a job compare to those who score a higher CGPA. In the same time, by finding out which of the category that affect the overall CGP A most, suitable guideline can be given to the future student in SST to improve the overall performance of in academic. The results suggest that the independent variables of mean CGPA of major, minor and PPIB shows a positive relationship with the overall CGPA while the number of semester taken to graduate show a negative relationship with it. Besides, race was found to have a main effect on each category of the subject except PPIB subjects. Furthermore, major subjects are found to affect the academic performance most
