This paper is applying methods from soft sets theory for timely identification of students who are in danger to fail their exam in a particular subject. The work exploits the advantages of soft sets compare to fuzzy logics and statistical methods. While most statistical methods require large data sets and perform well in stochastically stable environments, the ones we have been addressing in this paper can give results within a very small data sets and can accommodate additional information derived from later experiments.
