Nowadays, how to use education industries’ data is a hot topic. Taking the scores of 70 courses of 216 students in the College of Mathematics and Data Science as the sample, the Principal Component Analysis-Support Vector Machine (PCA-SVM) model for early warning system is established by selecting the first-year course scores and graduate grades. The PCA-SVM is better than Support Vector Machine (SVM) in accuracy, probability of false alarm and F1-score. The PCA-SVM model for early warning system can provide students with more accurate academic guidance, and can provide scientific basis for teaching reform and management decision making.
