It is known that in the last years, the number of women enrolled in the Mathematics Degree at UPC has decreased considerably. Based on that, and on the importance to show to society that both men and women are equally able to pursue the same fields of academia, profession, sports etc, the objective of this study is to compare the performance of the students enrolled in the Bachelor's in Mathematics at UPC from a gender point of view. The examined dataset consists of 725 students that were enrolled in the Bachelor's in Mathematics at UPC during the school years 2009/10 to 2019/20. The response variables considered in this study are the bachelor's access grade, the results of the level test applied to the students when they are admitted, the mean grade of the initial phase, the number of semesters required to pass the initial phase, number of subjects passed on the first attempt and the dropout probability. Gender, if the student is or not CFIS, the bachelor's access grade and the lowest access grade, the results of the level test and the year of enrolment have been used as possible explanatory variables. The methodologies that have been applied are Linear Models, Generalized Linear Models with a Binomial response and the analysis of contingency tables.
