This paper shows statistics of a group at the Faculty of Telecommunications Engineering in Barcelona (Spain). Due to the different origin and academic background of the students, planning the course is a challenging task. This work shows the features that characterize the group as heterogeneous. Statistics about the origin and the grades of a test before the course are shown along with the existing correlation between both. The paper also analyzes the grades obtained in the final exams and relates them to the origin and initial test. In the statistics some groups can be differentiated with students belonging to each group showing a similar degree of academic progress. The results allow drawing some conclusions on how a careful observation of the countries of origin, academic background and the results of a test before starting the course can help to plan a balanced course and evaluation.
