Introduction: Students’ performance (academic achievement) plays an important role in producing the best quality graduates who will become great leaders and manpower for the country thus responsible for the country’s economic and social development. Aim: The main aim of this study was to assess factors affecting academic performance of students among University of Gondar College of Medicine and Health Sciences midwives students. Methods: An institutional based cross sectional study was conducted in Gondar University College of Medicine and Health Sciences. All fourth and third year students were participated in the study. A structured and pre-tested questionnaire was used to collect the data. The data was entered, cleaned and edited using EPI INFO version 2002 and exported to SPSS version 20 software packages for analysis. Both bivariate and multiple logistic regression was fitted, odds ratio and 95% CI was computed to identify associated factors and determine the strength of association. A p-value of < 0.05 was considered as statistical significant. Result: Among 149 midwife students 108 (72.5%) achieved distinction and above and of them 76 (51%) were males. The covariant variable rural residence (AOR=2.64, 95% CI: 1.129, 6.2), third year midwife (AOR=2.67, 95% CI: 1.14, 6.24), student reported teacher during skill lab was found not helpful and effective (AOR=2.4, 95% CI: 1.03, 6.06), 10th grade 3.25 and above 2.75 (AOR=16, 95%CI: 2.7, 100.9) were significant association with academic performance (distinction and above). Conclusion: Students’ academic performances were fair. Rural residence, third year students, student reported teacher during skill lab was not helpful and effective and 10th grade 3.25 and above were significant association with academic performance. Attention should give to urban residence, fourth year and students who achieved high score in 10th grade.
