The objective of this study was to assess the relationship between the hours of physical activity (PF), the score obtained Physical Education (PE) and the average score of the rest of the subjects (NMG). The sample consisted of 117 bachelor students belonging to different high schools of Alicante. The results showed that PF obtained better scores against NMG, regardless of the type of bachelor or student’s sex. The scientific bachelor showed the highest levels of AF and the best scores in both PF and NMG. There were no significant differences in the correlation between the PF subject and the NMG of the students according to the bachelor modality. Students who practiced PF outside the workday at school showed better NMG regardless of gender although women seem to benefit to a greater extent from the positive effects of AF on academic performance.
