This research work aims at enhancing a classification task for student’s realisation model at Salahadin University, Hawler, Kurdistan.  1000 records of data from different colleges and departments at Salahadin University are collected to conduct this research work. The collected data has been pre-processed, cleaned, filtered, normalized, then after, feature selection techniques are applied to reduce the dimensionally of the data,  finally a classification task is carried out to find the realization of students. The results show that a model of Support Vector Machine +Genetic Algorithm + Artificial Neural Network produces promising results than other models.
