The quality of the students' educational outcomes is reported to be one of important problems attracting scholarly attention. Every employer seeks highly qualified employees. Academic performance is one of the indicators of professional learning outcomes. University achievement is influenced by various factors. The goal of our study is to explore the relationship between student university academic outcomes and the quality of school education they received before entering university. The Institute of Physics at Kazan Federal University introduces several foundational academic programs of higher education. For this particular study we selected the second and third year students from three different programs having assumed that the first year students have already gone through their period of adaptation and proceeded to the next stage of their studies. The first stage of our pedagogical analysis leads us to see that there is no relationship between the students’ training results and the type of school (rural or urban) they graduated from. We’ve come to such a conclusion based on correlation mining and structural analysis of the data matrix.
