Iraqi dataset is collected through applying (or submitting) questionnaire in three Iraqi secondary schools for both applicable and biology branches of the final stage during the second semester of the 2018 year. Initially, the questionnaire contains 56 questions in three A4 sheets and it is answered by 250 students (samples). Latter, 130 samples are discarded due to lack of information since pre-processing is applied to obtain the most complete information of students. After removing inconsistencies and incompleteness in the dataset, this study considers 120 samples instances with 55 features for experiment purposes. The features are distributed into five main categories: Demographic, Economic, Educational, Time, and Marks. Table (1) shows the dataset’s attributes/features and their description. As illustrated in this table, new features are introduced, such as holiday and worrying effects. The relationships between parents with schools and use of books and references by the student are also considered.
